Man charged with taking electronics and toys from Barrie Walmart

A 21-year-old Barrie man is facing theft charges after police say he was spotted removing the security tags from items at Walmart.

City police were called to the Bayfield Street store Wednesday around 9 p.m. after getting a report store security saying a man removed the tags form several items in the electronics department. Police say the man was spotted taking a bag from the sporting goods department and placing the electronics in it, along with several items from the toy department.

He left the store without paying, but was stopped outside by store security.

An investigation revealed he was wanted on an outstanding warrant for a previous theft in November.

He is now facing an additional charge of theft under $5,000 and held for a bail hearing Thursday morning.
