At approximately 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, August 28, police were called to the area of Ottaway Avenue and Davidson Street in Barrie after a male was seen walking from driveway to driveway trying various vehicles to see if they were unlocked.

While all the handles that this male checked appeared to be locked, and Police have not received any reports of stolen property, Police would still like to speak with this male and are seeking his identity.

The suspect is described as:

  • Male, white
  • Aged 20 - 25
  • Skinny build
  • Approximately 5'10” tall
  • Wearing a black short sleeve shirt, black pants, black shoes, and black-rimmed eye-glasses

As part of your evening routine every night, the public is encouraged to double-check that vehicles are locked and that any valuables are out of sight, or taken out of the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Constable L. Opara of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2725 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.
