A man's attempts to get away with some smokes from a Barrie store have been foiled.

Police say that on Friday night, a man went into the Mac's convenience store on Bayfield Street, and hopped over the counter and started taking packages of cigarettes.

A store clerk confronted the suspect and there was a brief struggle in which a newspaper stand was allegedly thrown at the employee.

The suspect left the store and was arrested after a brief foot chase.

A 20 year old man of no fixed address has been charged with robbery and assault with a weapon.
