Pandemic doesn’t stop scam artists targeting Save on Foods locations across Western Canada

2021-06-10 - File #2021-7643

On April 11, 2021, the Save on Foods on McCallum Road, Langford, BC, was the most recent known target of a pair who has been scamming their way across Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The two women were first spotted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in March of this year. The suspects use a distraction-based technique to allow them to pocket cash and depart before was theft is discovered. In some instances, they were observed leaving in a dark coloured minivan.

Since the first incident on March 19, 2021, officials at Save on Foods estimate the women have managed to pocket $7,386.00 in cash from various stores across the three provinces.

Someone knows who these women are, says Cst Meighan Massey, of the West Shore RCMP. They are traveling across Canada, in the middle of a pandemic, victimizing businesses as they go. We are asking for anyone with information regarding these crimes to please contact police.

If you or anyone you know has information regarding the identity of these women, please contact the West Shore RCMP at (250)474-2264 or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact CRIME STOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Here is something I had absolutely no idea about. Years before his infamous Vancouver murder spree Olson scammed Victorians. It's creepy to think he was here when I was a kid.

Nice find - not for capital punishment myself, but I did breathe a sigh of relief when dear old Clifford passed away in 2011.

Physiotherapist pleads guilty to secretly recording four women

 

A Victoria physiotherapist has pleaded guilty to secretly observing and recording four women last year.

 

 

Gilles-Phillippe Joseph Alle Lavoie appeared by video in Victoria provincial court on Friday and pleaded guilty to unlawfully and surreptitiously observing or visually recording four women “where those people could be expected to be nude or to be engaged in explicit sexual activity in circumstances where they had a reasonable expectation of privacy.”

 

 

 

 

^ not much story there.  but i've taken the liberty to find more.  here:

 

A former massage therapist in Saanich is facing a voyeurism charge after he was arrested on Aug. 10.

 

Gilles-Phillipe Lavoie, 48, has been charged with one count of secretly observe/record nudity in a private place. He is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 25 after a court appearance in October.

 

Saanich police said on Aug. 10, an incident was reported to them.

 

Lavoie, who was conducting his practice at a clinic in Saanich, was arrested that same day. He was later released with conditions and a court date in early October.

 

https://www.cheknews...-charge-718640/

 

 

Saanich police say they are still investigating and this is believed to be a single incident.

 

 

 

^ guess that part turned out to be wrong and thus the reason he's in jail now.

Saanich massage therapist pleads guilty to secretly video recording four women

June 11, 2021

A Saanich massage therapist has pleaded guilty to secretly recording four women and one of his victims is speaking out in hope of protecting others.

Marion Brulot says her world exploded last year after she found out that she had been secretly videotaped by Gilles-Philippe Lavoie while the two of them were being intimate.

I gathered from the story (and the photo) that she was in a relationship with Lavoie, until she found out what he was up to.

Yeah, that whole story was oddly written. I also thought "Thrifty's parking lot?" but then I considered that may have been where she was when she found out about the video-ing, not the actual venue of the bonk in question. But who knows?

I read a couple of news articles.

 

It turns out the woman was in a relationship and living with this man. The guy is a real dirt-bag:

 

“I was devastated. I’m the survivor of years of sexual abuse and sexual assault. I told him that’s why I didn’t want him to videotape us and yet he did it because he had a phone and he felt like it.”

Brulot had to go to the police station to identify herself and Lavoie on the video. She watched, on the video, as Lavoie hid the phone in the bedroom, made sure there was nothing blocking the view, then called her into the room.

Edmonton man starts randomly smashing vehicle windows with a hammer.

Help Us Find Dog, Lost After Random Attack

Date: Saturday, June 12, 2021

File: 21-23051

Victoria, BC – Officers are asking for your help in reuniting a victim of a random violent attack with her dog, which ran away during an incident in Victoria yesterday.

Shortly before 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 11th, Patrol officers were called to the 500-block of Pembroke Street for a report that a man smashed the driver’s side window of a van with a hammer while the occupant and her dog were inside. Officers attended immediately and located the suspect near the intersection of Pembroke and Government streets. Officers arrested the man without further incident.

Officers learned that the incident began when the suspect was heard screaming on the street in the 500-block of Pembroke Street. He then smashed the windows of a parked vehicle behind the victim’s van with a hammer.

The victim attempted to flee the scene in her van. However, the suspect began smashing her vehicle windows with a hammer. The victim and her dog then fled from her van out of the passenger side, while the van kept moving and collided with an additional parked vehicle. The dog, frightened by the incident, ran away from the scene and has yet to be found. The victim ran to safety and alerted police.

The lost dog is described as a brown Pit Bull named Camper, who wears a pink collar. Camper was last seen running in the 700-block of Government Street shortly after the incident. A photograph of Camper is below.



Officers transported the man to VicPD cells. The suspect, a 40-year-old Edmonton man, faces recommended charges of assault with a weapon and mischief. He was later released with a court date and conditions.

This file remains under investigation.

If you know the whereabouts of Camper, or have information about this incident and have not yet spoken to officers, please call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654 extension 1. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Know it all.

No to worry, he will be given free (tax-payer paid) permanent housing in Victoria and at the next PIT census, he will count as a long term Victoria résident.
