Sleepy Suspect

Barrie | by Ian MacLennan  
Man catches up on a few z's before making off with merchandise.

You snooze.  You lose.

That wasn't the case for a  man who entered the south end Barrie Walmart store just before closing back on September 8th.

Police say the guy hid behind merchandise on a shelf in the housewares department and appears to have taken a nap for several hours.

He woke up around 1 a.m. the next day and proceeded to remove items from various departments worth about $4,500.

The suspect is described as:

Tall, thin, white male

Entered the store wearing a green and yellow hat, a grey t-shirt with peach long sleeves, a black sweater over his shoulders and black and white shoes.

Emerged from the shelving, wearing the black sweater with a large white logo on the front with the hood pulled up.
