Police have now identified the two suspects they believe are responsible for a brazen robbery on Sunday.

Police say a couple pulled a switcheroo by trading a java maker for beer at Loblaws on Bayfield Street on Sunday.

After misleading the customer service employee into giving them a refund for a coffee press they took off a shelf, the suspects convinced the employee to use those funds to buy several cases of beer and cigarettes.

The incident was caught on video surveillance and police are now looking for Carl Piche, 44, and 40-year-old Kelly Macfie, who are both residents of Barrie

Anyone with information is asked to call the Barrie police at 705-725-7025, or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS ( 8477), or leave an anonymous tip online at www.tipsubmit.com.
