City police have released these photos of a suspect in connection to this week's crash in downtown Barrie where a stolen vehicle was driven into the front window of a local shop.

City police have released surveillance photos of a suspect wanted in a connection to a crash in downtown Barrie where a stolen vehicle smashed into the front window of a 'medical mushroom' dispensary.

Following the crash, police say "it was determined that the location was a store selling illegal psilocybin products." However, no details have been released about whether any charges have been laid. 

Shroomyz bills itself as a "medical mushroom" dispensary, which sells its product both online and in-store.

Often referred to as "magic mushrooms," psilocybin contains hallucinogens. The production, sale and possession of the mushrooms are illegal in Canada.

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 6, officers responded to a crash at 15 Dunlop St. W, near the Five Points.

No injuries were reported and the driver of the vehicle was not located. 

The vehicle involved in the crash had been reported stolen in Toronto earlier on Tuesday. 

The investigation remains ongoing, but investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in the photos who was believed to be driving the involved vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 705-725-7025 or If you have information and wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online.
