Allergy Medication Taken In Barrie Drug Store Theft

Lunchbox used to stash the loot

Barrie Police have released a surveillance photo of a man wanted for stealing $200 worth of Claritin allergy medication from the Shoppers Drug Mart at 420 Essa Road in Barrie.

Security shows a man placing the medication in a blue lunch box just after noon on October 7, then leaving the store without paying.

He’s described as:

  • Male, white
  • Medium build
  • Wearing a black hoodie with a white NY logo on the front

While the video surveillance is not very clear, investigators are hoping the logo on the sweatshirt will help aid in identifying this suspect.

Anyone who may have information is asked to contact Constable C. Thompson of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext. 2707, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
