The Barrie Police Service requests the assistance of the public with regards to an ongoing robbery investigation.
On Thursday, March 7, at 2:30 p.m., police responded to a report of a robbery at the CIBC at 600 Yonge Street in Barrie. Upon arrival, it was determined by uniformed officers that the two suspects involved had fled the scene in an unknown vehicle and in an unknown direction. No weapons were seen and an undisclosed amount of Canadian currency was obtained.
At the scene, the Barrie Police Tactical Support and Canine Units assisted, however a short canine track determined that the suspects fled the bank likely to a car that was waiting for them on the west side of the bank. The ongoing investigation, which is being conducted by detectives from the Barrie Police Investigative Services and the Forensic Identification Unit, is continuing.
From witness interviews and surveillance video from within the bank, police are able to now provide the description of the two suspects who carried out this mid-afternoon robbery. The suspects are described as:
- Male black, mid 20’s black hoody, black track pants with a white stripe and wearing a dark face mask.
- Male non-white, possibly Asian or Hispanic, mid 20’s wearing dark jacket with grey hoody and grey face mask.
- Believed to have fled in a silver or white passenger 4-door car.
