Four Fragrance Thieves Unsuccessful But Still Sought by Police
October 19th, 2018 - Police & the Community

On Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 at 9:15 pm four (4) females entered the Shoppers Drug Mart located at 524 Bayfield Street, in the City of Barrie.  Employees recognized the group from a previous incident involving multiple stolen fragrances and recent crime bulletins.  The group of females were approached by employees and became belligerent, causing a disturbance in the store.  The manager was alerted and contacted police immediately.  The females retreated to a silver or white Hyundai Elantra with a possible licence plate of CDMC 853, however before leaving the parking lot they returned to the store, yelling and intimidating the employees further.  Before police arrived on scene a mere sight (8) minutes later, the group had fled yet again.

Investigators believe the suspects are the same as previously reported in a Barrie Police release from Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 titled: Four Suspects Distracting and Dashing Local at Shoppers Drug Marts. It is also believed the suspects have traveled south of the City of Barrie and investigators are working with neighbouring police services to identify the group of females.

Anyone who may have information is asked to please contact Constable S Fehrman of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2631 or sfehrman@barriepolice.ca. Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at P3 Tips.
