Barrie Man Says He Was Threatened, Police Learn Otherwise

22-year-old May Not Have Thought Call To Police Through Enough

A Barrie man called the cops after he says he was threatened, but it turns out the threat was “stop it or I’ll call the cops.” Barrie Police say they got the call from a 22-year-old man in the north end around 11:30 last night. Police showed up and spoke to the man who claims he was threatened by another, but digging deeper, police found more to the story. Officers say the guy who called them had actually been checking driveways for unlocked cars to steal from, and the person doing the threatening was actually telling the boy to beat it. No charges laid.
