Robbery Being Investigated
February 15th, 2019 - Police & the Community

The Barrie Police Service is requesting the assistance of the public with regards to an ongoing robbery investigation.

On Wednesday, February 13, 2019, at 11:00 a.m., a lone male entered the Circle K Convenience Store located at 353 Duckworth Street in the City of Barrie. Once inside, a demand was made and an undisclosed amount of money was received. The suspect then very calmly turned and walked out of the store and continued across the plaza parking lot westbound towards Duckworth Street.

Responding uniform officers immediately set up an area of containment and were assisted by members of the Barrie Police Tactical Support Unit (TSU) and Canine Unit with the hope of locating the suspect. Unfortunately, the subsequent canine track was unsuccessful and the person responsible for this robbery remains at large.

Police are hoping that through images captured by surveillance cameras at the store that someone may recognize the suspect who is described as:

  • Male white, approximately 5'9"-5"10, skinny build
  • Green camouflage style jacket with a black hoody underneath, green camouflage style toque with black trim and small red emblem on trim, greyish coloured  pants, white/red NIKE 3/4 top shoes.

Anyone with information or who may have residential video surveillance is asked to contact Barrie Police Investigative Services at 705-725-7025, ext. 2623, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com.
