May 3rd, 2018 - Police & the Community

Barrie Police Service is looking to identify a male who was captured stealing multiple items from Walmart but he pulled away from the Loss Prevention Officer when confronted outside the store.

On Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018 at 11:00 am a male entered Walmart located at 450 Bayfield Street, in the City of Barrie.  The male selected various expensive electric razors and hand razors, placing some in a shopping basket and some in his jacket pocket.  The male was observed entering a concealed area with a backpack and his jacket on and when he emerged the shopping basket had a few less items, and the backpack appeared to be a little more robust.  The male then exited the store making no attempt to pay for any items concealed or the items still in the shopping basket.  At this time the Loss Prevention Officer confronted the male who immediately fled dropping the basket and goods.
