Shop Theft allows employees of a Retail Business to report a theft of merchandise, with a value less than $5,000, where the suspect is NOT in custody.

If the person responsible for the theft is in custody, please call the Greater Sudbury Police Service at 705-675-9171 to have an Officer dispatched to your business.

When completing a Shop Theft Report, please:

  • Ensure that you are an employee of a retail business. If you are reporting a theft that does not involve a retail business, please file a Theft Under $5,000 Report.
  • Provide a detailed description of the incident along with a photo of the party involved in the theft, if available.
  • If video is available, please retain a copy of the video of the incident as it may be required for court purposes.
  • Include a detailed list of all items taken along with a value for all of the items.
  • Provide any suspect information, if available.
  • Ensure that you have a valid email address.

Filing a false police report is a criminal offence.
