Barrie Police Service is currently looking for the public's assistance in identifying a male (that is alleged to be) responsible for the theft of 13 cell phones totalling over $1,100 from a local retail store.

On Saturday, April 14, 2018 at  9:20 p.m., a male entered the Walmart located at 450 Bayfield St. in the City of Barrie. Once video surveillance was reviewed, the male can be seen entering the area where the cell phones were located and forcing entry into the cabinet. The suspect (allegedly) selected multiple cell phones, carrying them to another aisle where he used a backpack from the store rack to conceal the phones. The male then proceeded out of the store without paying for over $1,100 of cell phones or the back pack he used to (carry) them.
