Trio Sought After A Pocket Was Picked in North Barrie

Woman Found Out Too Late Her Wallet Was Stolen

Cops are on the hunt for some suspects with quick fingers.

Barrie Police say a wallet was snatched right out of a customer’s pocket, while she left a big box store on Bayfield St. last Thursday. The theft wasn’t discovered until the shopper got home, while several transactions had already been made by the time she cancelled her cards.

Store surveillance footage allegedly shows a trio follow the woman around, and while two men kept watch, a woman moved in and picked the victim’s pocket.

The suspects are described as:

Suspect #1

  • Female, white, 30-40 years old
  • Brown hair
  • Wearing all black and a white scarf with a black print on it

Suspect #2

  • Male, white, 20-30 years old
  • Thin build
  • Wearing black/white camouflage printed hat, sunglasses, black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, light coloured pants and black shoes

Suspect #3

  • Male, white, 25-35 years old
  • Wearing a black hat, black jacket, cross-body bag, black shoes with white soles
