November 10th, 2017 - Police & the Community

The Barrie Police is seeking the public’s assistance to identify a suspect responsible for a theft at Factory Direct, located at 400 Bayfield Street, in the City Barrie.

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, just after 12:30 p.m., a suspect entered the store and removed two sets of earphones, a digital alarm clock and an auxiliary cable from the shelf, and placed into his backpack. Exiting the store nonchalantly, the suspect never caught the attention of store employees.

The Suspect is described as;

  • Male, white (40 yrs.)
  • Unshaved (light stubble)
  • Wearing a black toque, green winter jacket, black pants, and carrying a black laptop backpack.

A clear picture of the suspect cannot be captured as a result of poor quality video surveillance, although police are requesting assistance in identifying the male through clothing or other descriptive features. Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Thanasse of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025, ext. 2543, cthanasse@barriepolice.ca or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, leave an anonymous tip online at www.tipsubmit.com
