Barrie police are seeking the public’s assistance identifying a man accused of stealing a vehicle from a residence in downtown Barrie in early April.

According to police, on April 6, at approximately 6:50 p.m., a red 2005 Ford van was stolen from the driveway of a residence on Park Street.

Police say the following week, on April 12, at approximately 10:30 a.m., they received another call from the victim, and were told the van had been found parked outside of the LCBO on Mary Street. The suspect left the scene before officers arrived.

However, surveillance cameras inside the LCBO were able to capture footage of the man police believe to be responsible for stealing the van.
