Three Stolen Credit Cards and Multiple Fraudulent Purchases
March 27th, 2017 - Police & the Community

Barrie Police have received surveillance video after multiple fraudulent transactions occurred when a local junk removal company had three company credit cards stolen.

Between Friday, March 10th and Sunday, March 12th, 2017 a break and enter occurred to the business's secure yard on Miller Drive, in the City of Barrie.  It is believed the suspects entered the yard and located the keys to the vehicles parked on the property. They were entered and the company credit cards were taken along with a cellular phone belonging to the business.  Bank records show over 20 fraudulent transactions occurring over the weekend including convenience store purchases, hotel rooms and withdrawals from a bank machine totaling over $4500.00.

Officers have received surveillance from multiple businesses confirming the male pictured is the same at several locations.  It is also possible a female is also linked to the use of the credit cards throughout the weekend.  No photographs or descriptors are available for the female at this time.

Police are continuing their investigation at this time and wish for anyone who may have information to please contact PC S McGill of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2527 or email at smcgill@barriepolice.ca. Any information can be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or leave an anonymous tip online at www.tipsubmit.com
