EDITOR'S NOTE: A story published here yesterday detailing a "cut and dash" at a local barber shop has been removed because of poor or incorrect information supplied by Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers.

The story detailed the identity of a man who Crime Stoppers said walked away from an expensive hair treatment. Since publication of the story, iNFOnews.ca has been contacted by the manager of the barber shop in question. We are no longer confident that Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers has released the most accurate information regarding this matter and therefore have removed any information that could potentially identify the individual in question.

After iNFOnews.ca contacted Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers, the organization took down the Facebook post which included surveillance footage of the suspect with an easily recognizable and unique haircut.

The post was published to Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers' Facebook page yesterday afternoon, in which a man was alleged to have walked into a barber shop in Sahali, essentially asking for a cut and colour then left without paying.

The manager of the shop said, shortly after publication, the man did eventually come back to pay after the police became involved in the case, but she did not specify when.

Crime Stoppers offered no explanation for what happened.
