On Wednesday, January 10, 2024, just before 4:30 p.m., the Barrie Police Service was contacted by a south Barrie big box store after two shoplifters were apprehended as they left the store after stealing a significant number of electronic accessories.
Upon arrival of police, it was confirmed that a 25-year-old female and a 34-year-old male, both from Toronto, had concealed the items in a backpack and made no attempt to pay for them as they walked by all the points of sale locations.
A full recovery of the stolen items, which were valued at over $3200 was made. The arrested persons were investigated and later released from custody after being charged with Theft Under $5000. They are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in Barrie on February 14, 2024, in regard to this matter.
