Scotch Stolen from South End Store
April 15th, 2019 - Police & the Community

The Barrie Police Service is appealing to the public for assistance after a theft was reported in the City of Barrie.

On Monday, March 8, 2019, at 1:18 p.m., a female attended the LCBO located on Caplan Avenue and stole six bottles of very expensive scotch. She then left the store after purchasing three other canned products that she had selected. The theft was only determined after empty cardboard tubes that the stolen bottles came in were located a short time later.

When the store video surveillance system was reviewed, it was very quickly determined how the entire theft was carried out and a picture was provided to police that clearly showed who was responsible. The suspect is described as female, white, short with dark hair, dark jacket with fur trimmed hood, dark pants and dark shoes. She carried a large purse which was used to conceal five bottles of Macallan Classic Cut and a single bottle of Benriach Peated Cask. The alcohol taken is valued at just under $875.

Anyone with information on this theft is asked to contact Constable Osborne of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025, ext. 2783 or by email at [email protected]. You can also contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com.
