Police Looking to ID Travelling Fraudster
June 26th, 2018 - Police & the Community

Barrie Police Service is looking for the public's assistance in identifying a suspect wanted in two separate identity frauds that occurred in the City of Barrie.

On Friday, March 16th, 2018 an unknown suspect first entered the TD Canada Trust at 53 Ardagh Road and then attempted his hoax at the TD Canada Trust at 534 Bayfield Street, both in the City of Barrie. The suspect presented a fraudulent Ontario Drivers Licence and attempted to gain access to the victim’s bank account, requesting a replacement bank card. Bank employees at both locations were suspicious of the ID provided believing it to be fraudulent and declined to provide service. Further investigation led to information that the suspect was wanted in similar fraud investigations throughout south-western Ontario and multiple agencies are working together to obtain the suspects identity. 

Description:

  • Male, white
  • Approximately 6'0" tall and medium build
  • Short thinning brown hair and clean shaven
  • Wearing black short sleeve collared shirt, black pants and large gold chain necklace

Police are continuing their investigation at this time and wish for anyone who may have information is asked to please contact Detective RyanTrollope #5582 of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2949 or rtrollope@barriepolice.ca. Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com
