Handgun used in Barrie hold-up: police

Barrie police are still seeking three suspects wanted in the hold-up of the Mac’s Milk convenience store at 280 Dunlop Street West, which involved a handgun being pointed at the store employee, police say.
Three males, it’s reported, entered the store just before midnight, Wednesday night. All three wore hoodies and bandanas, concealing their identities. One of the suspects, police say, produced a handgun, which he pointed at the male employee and demanded he open the cash register.
The other two went behind the counter and removed a number of cigarettes and cash. They then fled the store, and were seen by a witness who followed them. They ran into a bush area at the end of Boys Street and disappeared from sight.
Despite a police search that included a K-9 tracker dog, the suspects eluded capture.
The first male is described as being white, about 6’2″, and with a thin build. He was wearing a dark hoodie and a black jacket with a black bandana and sunglasses. The second suspect is a white male, about 5’9″ with a thin build wearing a black hoodie with a red bandana and sunglasses. He was also carrying a back pack. The third suspect was reportedly a white male about 5′, with a thin build and wearing a dark hoodie with a design all over it, a red bandana and a white ball hat.
Police report that the employee was not hurt. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Barrie police or Crimestoppers.
