Barrie Police Service is currently investigating a shameless theft in the middle of the day from a east end gas station.

On Friday, March 30th, 2018 at 2:30 pm the male suspect entered the Shell Gas Bar located at 204 Grove Street, in the City of Barrie.  After selecting various store items, he proceeded towards the checkout counter where he asked to see the scratch and win lotto tickets. The suspect then distracted the employee by asking a selection of online lottery tickets. While his attention was turned away, the suspect took $200 worth of scratch tickets and placed them in his back pant pocket. Before he realized they were missing the suspect asked for a selection of cigarettes at which time he grabbed the remaining items from the counter and ran out the front door in an unknown direction.
