Barrie Police say a van stolen from a Garibaldi Drive home June 4 has been found abandoned in Cambridge.
It’s believed the van was used as a getaway vehicle after a break-in at Power Up Gaming on Mapleview Drive.
A second vehicle believed to have been used in the break-in was found not far from the store with ignition damage. It had been taken from the Kia dealership on King Street in Barrie.
The suspects in the case remain at large (see pictures and descriptions below).
Barrie Police looking for two guys accused of stealing two getaway vehicles while breaking into a south end store. The theft happened just before 11:00 Sunday night, at Power Up Gaming on Mapleview Drive; the stolen van was swiftly loaded up with about $10,000 in stolen goods, with video surveillance showing two men doing the loading. The stolen vehicle was found not even a kilometre away from the scene of the crime by Monday morning, reportedly stolen from an area Kia dealership. Reports of another stolen vehicle in that area have police thinking the bad guys stole a second getaway car after ditching the first.
