Three Women Sought Following Barrie Distraction Theft

Police Say One Distracted Employees While The Other Two Filled Their Bags

We’ve got some new suspect photos copied and pasted to our website today. Barrie police passed them along as part of an investigation into a mid December theft. They say three women went into the National Sports store on Bayfield St, back on December 14th. Officers claim one of the suspects tripped the alarm to distract the employee from the fact that the other two were hiding clothing in their bags.
