Suspect Tries To Pawn Stolen Bike

Swiped from Centennial Beach

A stolen bike led Barrie police to a pawn shop, and they’re hoping a picture of the suspect will lead them to an arrest.

The bike was stolen last Tuesday from Centennial Beach.

A witness says the suspect was sitting nearby and when the owner wasn’t looking grabbed the bike and fled.

Police have video surveillance of a man trying to pawn the bike – a men’s, white, 21-speed Columbia Torrent with dual suspension and a water bottle mounted under the frame.

The suspect is described as: 

  • Male (35 to 42 yrs.)
  • Medium build, 5’8” to 5’10”
  • Bald
  • Tattoos on forearms and hands
  • Wearing a grey t-shirt, camo shorts, and carrying a backpack

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity to contact Barrie Police Service at (705) 725-7025 ext. 2521,, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
