This isn’t exactly the type of repeat business they were looking for.
Barrie Police responded to reports of a robbery at the Circle K on the corner of Dunlop and Mulcaster just before 7:00 Thursday morning. A masked man was caught on camera during the incident, accused of demanding cash of the clerk before running off.
A few hours later, at around 10:15, police were called to the same location with reports of a hold up; while the suspect was masked, distinctive red gloves indicated they were the same individual who had robbed the place earlier in the day.
Looks like our red gloved thief just struck for the 3rd time today. At 3:27pm, he attended the @CircleKStores located at 151 Bayfield St. and robbed this store too. #BarriePolice are investigating.
