This morning at 2:13 a.m., Barrie Police responded to a report of an armed robbery that occurred at the Circle K convenience store located at 149 St. Vincent Street in the City of Barrie.
Police were able to determine that the lone male suspect entered the store shortly after 2:00 a.m., walked around the counter and removed a large knife that was concealed in his pants. A demand for money was made and the on-duty clerk complied. The suspect then very calmly walked out of the store and continued walking southbound through the parking lot towards the intersection of St. Vincent and Penetang Streets.
Responding Barrie Police officers immediately set up a perimeter in the area in order to search for the suspect who is described as male white, approximately 5’8″ tall, 30-years old, black jacket with hood up, black baseball cap, black bandana with white outlines covering his face, black Adidas pants with a white stripe going down the side, white sneakers and white gloves.
A canine track was conducted, but unfortunately the suspect made good his escape.
Although an undisclosed amount of currency and two packages of cigarettes were obtained, the clerk was not injured and nothing else appears to have taken.
Anyone with information regarding this robbery or may know who is responsible is encouraged to call Barrie Police at 705-725-7025, ext. 2129.
