Factory Direct items taken

Nonchalance helped a man steal goods from a Barrie store Thursday.

Just after 12:30 p.m., a man walked into Factory Direct at 400 Bayfield St. and removed two sets of earphones, a digital alarm clock and an auxiliary cable from store shelves, said city police.

He placed these items in his backpack and nonchalantly left the store – not catching the attention of store employees.

Police describe him as white, age 40 and unshaven with light stubble.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. C. Thanasse at 705-725-7025, ext. 2543 or at or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or visit
