Waiting For A Package To Come? It May Have Been Stolen, Then Ditched Elsewhere

Police Recover Addressed Parcels As Hunt for Suspects Continue

Here’s a new one: Barrie Police are looking for someone who seemed to have ditched a bunch of stolen packages on someone else’s lawn.

The mystery began a week ago; police say someone threw unopened parcels onto the lawn of a Lampman Lane home, around 7:00 last Monday evening. Surveillance video reportedly shows a man, then woman exit a vehicle, with the fully addressed parcels left to be picked up by someone else.
