February 6th, 2018 - Police & the Community

UPDATE: Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 @ 2:10 pm

Barrie Police Service has identified the male suspect in relation to the theft of meat from the Real Canadian Superstore three (3) times in January.  The 44-year-old Barrie male will be facing multiple charges of Theft Under $5000.


Barrie Police Service is looking for the public's assistance in identifying a male responsible for, on multiple occasions, stealing meat and attempting to sell it in the parking lot of the grocery store he just came from.

On three (3) occasions in January, most recently Sunday, January 28th, 2018, an unknown male suspect entered the Real Canadian Superstore grocery store located at 289 Yonge Street, in the City of Barrie.  On each occasion, the male filled a cart with meat and immediately left the store without paying.  The store was notified when a concerned customer informed an employee that a male was selling meat in the parking lot, which seemed suspicious.  Surveillance video showed the same male moments before exiting the store with the stolen meat.  The male was not located or identified as he had fled before employees or police arrived. 

Description:

  • Male, black
  • 25 to 30-years-old
  • Approximately 6' and medium build
  • Wearing a yellow/orange baseball hat, grey jacket, zip up dark coloured hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and grey shoes

Police are continuing their investigation at this time and wish for anyone who may have information to please contact PC J Todd of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2775 or email at jtodd@barriepolice.ca. Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.tipsubmit.com.
