Barrie Police are asking for the public’s assistance after items were stolen from an unlocked vehicle Friday, April 26, 2019 at Kozlov Mall.
Police responded to a call at the Kozlov Mall, located at 400 Bayfield St., after the owner of a vehicle parked in the parking lot reported that two mobile devices were stolen from their unlocked car.
