Parking Lot Dispute Leads To Damaged Van

Suspect Really Wanted That Spot

Ever have someone steal your parking spot? Enough to tick you off for sure, but Barrie Police say this guy didn’t deal well with his anger. Happened around 2:00 Saturday afternoon, police say a van parked at the south end Walmart and its occupants were immediately yelled at by a guy claiming that spot was his. The family went in to shop, but returned to the van to find it had been all scratched up on the driver’s side. Store surveillance shows the same guy who yelled over the spot had returned to key the van. The suspect is described as:

  • Male, white
  • Mid-late 30’s
  • Medium build with pronounced stoop of his neck
  • Medium length brown hair with receding hairline and goatee
  • Wearing a grey t-shirt and dark pants
