Cops seek flooring thieves

Police are on the lookout for two suspects after hardwood flooring was stolen during a holdup in Vaughan last week.

At about 6 p.m. on April 30, two men, one armed with a handgun, entered ACXA Flooring at 7777 Keele St. and confronted the clerk, police say.

The clerk was forced into the washroom while the men used a forklift to steal a large quantity of hardwood flooring, police allege.

The victim wasn’t hurt during the robbery.

Police describe the first suspect as male, black, 6-foot-2 with a muscular build, short hair and clean shaven. He was wearing dark pants, a black hooded sweatshirt, a red toque and sunglasses. He spoke with a Jamaican accent. He was armed with a black handgun.

The second suspect is described as male, between 5-foot-8 and 6-feet, wearing a grey hooded sweater, blue jeans and white running shoes.

Investigators in the holdup squad are asking anyone with information to call them at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 6630 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers.
