On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 at approximately 2:50 pm, two males were observed on video surveillance entering Canadian Tire at 320 Bayfield Street, in the City of Barrie.  The pair positioned themselves in the power tool aisle where one male kept watch, at once point distracting an employee, and the second male pulled wire cutters from a bag and began removing the display tools and placing them in the bag.  The male keeping watch then selected a Dewalt Rotary Laser and both males exited the store to the parking lot where they can be seen entering a tan coloured Ford Expedition. 

Moments later one male re-entered the store, again returning to the power tool section where he concealed a turbo torch down his pants, and selects another tool placing it in the bag.  He then immediately leaves the store.  Both males were seen loading the stolen goods into the Ford Expedition and leaving the parking lot, however a licence plate could not be obtained.
