Boca Raton, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who dressed as a Chef to steal several syringes and needles from the Calusa Veterinarian Hospital on North Congress Avenue. Police say it happened around 11am on October 13th. The report is just being made public now. According to investigators, the man walked past the front desk and into an exam room where he stole several syringes and needles.
In a second incident, the suspect — Chef’s coat and all — is seen entering the Valero Gas station on Congress Avenue. He approached a cooler and grabbed a bottle of water and V8, then puts his hand over his face while walking out past a security camera. Oddly, he then walks to the pharmaceutical isle, opens a box of Tampax tampons, and steals one from the box. Police say he then pays for the items with a stolen credit card.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Boca Raton Police Department’s Tip Line at 561-416-3350 or anonymously send a text a 274637 (CRIMES). In the text area, type BRPD and the tip.
