Two arrests have been made after an alleged fraudulent transaction at a Loblaws grocery store in Barrie, Ont.

Police believe two people selected a PC coffee press in the store and then successfully misled customer service employees into a bogus refund. The suspects then exchanged the coffee press for several cases of beer and cigarettes.

Carl Piche, 44, has been charged with fraud under $5,000 and 40-year-old Kelly Macfie has also been charged with fraud under $5,000.

The duo is set to appear in a Barrie court in September.
