City police looking for man: Update

City police have arrested one man and remain looking for a second in connection with a cellphone taken Sept. 10 from Staples in north-Barrie.

At 6:20 p.m. on Sept. 12, officers arrested a man in a Bayfield Street back yard following a brief foot pursuit.

A 23-year-old Barrie man has been charged with theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property. He has a Barrie court in October.

Just after 4 p.m. Sept. 10, two men entered Staples and went directly to the cellphone area.

They split up, police said, circling but stalling near the cellphones, causing one alarm to sound.

One left and headed south on Bayfield Street.

A Black Samsung Galaxy A5 on display was taken and the alarm went off.

The second man fled the store on foot, and was last seen leaving the parking lot in a grey Toyota RAV4, with a no spare tire on the back.

One was wearing a sweater with yellow writing saying 'Every day I'm hustlin'.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Const. C. Conroy at 705-725-7025, ext. 2795 or at, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit
