Several LIDS Lifted by Suspect
February 15th, 2018 - Police & the Community

The Barrie Police are seeking public assistance in identifying two suspects following a theft at Georgian Mall, located at 509 Bayfield Street, in the City of Barrie.  

On Thursday, February 8, 2018, two suspects had entered LIDS; a store located within the Georgian Mall. One suspect attempted to distract the employee while his counterpart, the second suspect, removed several baseball hats from the shelf and placed them into a shopping bag he had been carrying.

The gig was up when the employee observed what had been happening and confronted the suspect. The suspect became hostile and quickly fled the store, followed by the second suspect. Both men were last seen exiting the Georgian Mall before security arrived. 

The Suspects are described as;

Suspect 1

  • Male, white (30 yrs.)
  • 5’9”, Medium build
  • Short brown hair
  • Wearing a black coat, grey hoodie, blue jeans, and white shoes and carrying a black backpack.  

Suspect 2

  • Male, white (30 yrs.)
  • 5’9”, Medium build
  • Short dark brown hair
  • Wearing a “Raptors” baseball hat, black coat, white hoodie, black pants and shoes.

The surveillance video provided is of poor quality and does not provide a clear picture of the suspects, although police are still requesting assistance in identifying the males through clothing or other descriptive features. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable Hemington of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025, ext. 2763, khemington@barriepolice.ca or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip at www.tipsubmit.com
