Barrie Police are looking to identify a male and female who used counterfeit bills to pay for their purchase at the Bayfield Street Winners location in April.

On the morning of Sunday, April 28, 2019, two suspects entered the store and selected multiple items from different departments. After spending quite a while in the store, the two proceeded to a cashier to checkout with their selections.

The male suspect paid for the dozens of items with several counterfeit bills, and they both left the store.

Unfortunately, store staff later realized that the bills used to pay for the purchase were counterfeit.

  • Approximately 5’9” tall, 170-180lbs
  • 30-40 years old
  • Wearing a black shirt, black tights, black boots, a long grey sweater and a patterned purse

Investigating officers are asking anyone who may have information to please contact Constable J. Towns of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2702 or [email protected].  Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com.
