Man Charged With Trying To Take a 2am Test Drive

Perp Was Five Hours Early For His Test Drive

Barrie Police are looking for a guy they say wanted to take a car for more than a test drive. Officers showed up at a Bayfield and Cundles area Ford dealership just before 2:00 with reports of some suspicious activity in the parking lot. Cleaning staff say they spotted a man climb into a Mustang, put on his seatbelt, and try to start the vehicle. When police put the cuffs on the suspect, they claim he said he was just warming up the car for his test drive when the manager got in. Too bad he was five hours early. The 35-year-old man was charged with Attempted Vehicle Theft and Probation Violation.
