Whatever the case, Jim Trimble at Mantiques in downtown Barrie says the $200 worth of gift cards that had been taken from his charity auction for RVH Foundation have been returned.
He did not want to comment further.
Barrie Police have confirmed the return of the cards, adding the case is closed. No charges will be laid.
