Police are seeking to identify two suspects after a laptop was reported stolen from a pawn shop in Barrie.

According to Barrie police, on Monday at around 8:30 p.m., a man and woman entered a pawn store on Little Avenue and attempted to pawn several power tools.

Officers say the pair were unable to do so because they didn’t have valid identification.

Police say the suspects continued to look around the store and were captured by security cameras allegedly putting an Apple MacBook Air laptop into the box containing the tools before quickly leaving the store.

Officers are now searching for a man, between the ages of 25 and 30, around five feet 10 inches tall. He was seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a black toque.
