Barrie Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a shoplifter who robbed a south-end Food Basics store this past weekend.
The female suspect entered the grocery store, located at 555 Essa Road, on Saturday, September 14 shortly after 1:30 p.m. and police determined she removed a quantity of over-the-counter non-prescription medication and ointments, and placed them in a large purse and left without paying for them.
The value of the stolen items is in excess of $850. The entire incident was captured by the store’s video surveillance.
Police identify the suspect as middle Eastern, in her 30s or 40s, and approximately five-foot-two with a slim build. She had on black-heel boots with a long ankle-length leopard print dress and was wearing a dark blue Hijab with glasses on her head.
Anyone with information on the theft and identity of the woman is asked to contact Constable Claridge of the Barrie Police Service by email at [email protected], or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip online at www.p3tips.com.
