Waterloo Regional police say both of the major malls in the K-W area were hit by thieves early Tuesday morning.

Police were called to Conestoga Mall around 1:10 Tuesday morning for a report of a break and enter.  Two men broke into The Bay, smashed glass display cases and stole jewelry.

Just forty-five minutes later, police responded to Fairview Park Mall.  According to police, the same two men broke in to The Bay, this time grabbing watches after smashing a display case.

Officers located the suspects in their vehicle not far from the scene, but they fled at a high rate of speed towards the highway.  Due to public safety concerns, police did not pursue the vehicle.

The suspects are described as white males.  One was wearing a grey hoodie, dark coat, white runners and white gloves.  The second man was wearing a blue hoodie, khaki pants, dark shoes and a dark balaclava covering part of his face.
