Theft of coins from Barrie laundromat

Barrie police are investigating the theft of a container of coins taken from laundry machines at a Burton Avenue laundromat.

A customer who had come to use the machines contacted police around 8 a.m. Monday about the break and enter.

“From the investigation that followed, police have determined that at 2:50 a.m., two males dressed in dark clothing and face coverings entered the 24-hour business and forced open an office door. Once inside, a container with coins taken from the laundry machines was stolen,” police said in a news release on Tuesday. “Although the picture quality is not the best, the incident was captured on surveillance cameras located in the business and an image of one of the suspects responsible is being shared”

If anyone has information that may assist police in identifying either of the suspects, please contact Barrie Police Constable Smith who is the investigating officer.
