BARRIE, Ont. -- Police say thieves who broke into a business in Barrie, Ont., stripped it of $15,000 worth of hair-removal products after they failed to crack the store's safe.
Investigators say that before the store was broken into it's believed the burglars cut the power, which disabled the alarm system.
The thieves then cut a hole in the building's rear wall, and once inside they failed to pry open the store's safe.
They then got into the store's display area and grabbed the hair-removal products before fleeing.
Police say there was physical evidence at the scene which has been sent off for forensic analysis.
They're asking anyone with information on the heist to contact them.
