Barrie Police have received an overwhelming amount of tips in regards to the identity of the male responsible for the theft of the wallet and cell phone.  It also appears the male is responsible for multiple other thefts in the area.  The 19-year-old Barrie male was arrested over the weekend for unrelated offences and the additional charges will be added to the list when he appears in court in February.

Barrie Police are currently investigating a theft of wallet and cell phone from the Holly Recreation Center change room that occurred last week.

On Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 between 3:06pm and 3:36pm an unknown male entered the men's change room at the Holly Recreation Center located at 171 Mapleton Avenue, in the City of Barrie, and removed a wallet and cellular phone from a gym bag not secured in a locker.  Upon realizing the items were missing, the victim cancelled all cards but was advised one had been used at two locations: Mary Brown's Famous Chicken & Taters located at 560 Essa Road and The Kff Smoke & Gift located at 17-555 Essa Road.
