The Barrie Police, are seeking the help of the public, to identify four suspects, committing several recent thefts in the city of Barrie and other areas.
The suspects are entering area drug stores together.
The usual method of action, is to have one or two of the suspects act as distractors, by keeping the staff busy, allowing the other two to select and steal copious amounts of cologne, perfumes, and various beauty products, amounting to several thousand dollars.
The suspects then all make good their escape on foot, and it is believed they are possibly driving a 2004 or close in year, dodge caravan, gold in colour.
The suspects are described as:
#1: male, possibly middle-eastern, light complexion, approx 5’10”, slim build, late 20’s to mid 30’s, short brown hair, with a beard. well dressed, usually in jeans, and polo shirt. carries an over-shoulder bag, used to conceal stolen goods.
#2: female, possibly middle-eastern, light complexion, approx 5’8”, slim build, late 20’s to early 30’s, long dark hair, well dressed,observed wearing a long, floor length light coloured dress.
