Early January router theft from south Barrie store just discovered recently

suspects caught on camera

Police are on the hunt for two suspects after a five-finger discount was taken at a south Barrie computer shop.

Barrie Police say the theft happened in early January but was just discovered Saturday. A review of store security cameras shows a man and woman enter the store before stealing a wireless router. The man allegedly took it out of the box and placed it on the ground, while the woman came by after to pick up the device, concealing it in a large black bag she brought. The two then left the store without making any attempt to pay.

The router is valued at $450.

The suspects are described as:

Suspect #1: Male non-white (possibly of middle Eastern descent), black hair, black beard, black ¾ length winter jacket with fur around the hood, a black ball cap with  “Nike“ in white lettering, blue jeans and light brown coloured boots.

Suspect #2: Female non-white (possibly of middle Eastern descent), long black hair in a ponytail, black ¾ length winter jacket with fur around the hood, blue jeans, white boots and carrying a large black bag.
