New Tecumseth male faces multiple charges - armed robbery, flee police

Posted May 16, 2018

A New Tecumseth man is facing multiple charges stemming from a robbery of a pharmacy in Everett, which turned into a high speed police pursuit, ending with his arrest in Barrie yesterday afternoon.

Nottawasaga OPP reported this morning Remedy's Rx Pharmacy on Main Street in Everett was held up shortly after 1 pm by an armed male demanding drugs from the pharmacist. He fled the scene in a black pick-up truck, and police were dispatched at 1:12 pm

"A number of attempts were made to stop the fleeing truck utilizing a tire deflation device (spike belt) as it made its way westbound on Highway 89, west of Alliston. However, due to manner in which the truck was being operated, officers requested and received the assistance from OPP Aviation Services and the truck was safely followed by an OPP helicopter," according to police. "As the truck continued to travel eastbound on County Rd. 90 towards the City of Barrie, the Barrie Police Service was notified and provided assistance to the Nottawasaga OPP officers who were trying to safely get the truck stopped.

At 2:19 pm, after travelling on one flat tire, the truck approached Dunlop Street from the area of High Street and as it attempted to travel eastbound onto Dunlop Street, it was boxed in and the driver was taken into custody without incident."

Jamie Adam Mulholland, 29, of New Tecumseth is charged with the following:
  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
  • Flight While Pursued by Peace Officer;
  • Armed Robbery;
  • Disguise with Intent;
  • Two counts Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5,000; and
  • Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose.
The accused was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing today at the Ontario Court of Justice located in Barrie.
