zissou adidas ‘Armed and dangerous’ suspect sought in theft at Saanich Centre

He has a written tattoo on the back part of his neck.
Godolphin was last seen wearing black Adidas, straight leg pants with three stripes down the sides, a black T shirt, and black hoodie with white writing on the front.
