At approximately 8:30 p.m. on January 12, Barrie Police received a call from a local restaurant, reporting that a food delivery driver had been robbed of their vehicle.
The driver was in his vehicle in the restaurant parking lot when a male approached the car and forcefully removed the driver before leaving in the stolen vehicle.
Moments later, a Barrie Police Officer observed the vehicle parked. When the officer turned his cruiser around to approach the car, the driver exited the vehicle and ran away on foot. The officer was able to quickly locate the male and place him under arrest.
A 34-year-old Innisfil male is facing multiple charges, including Robbery with Violence, Operation while Impaired, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, and Possession of a Schedule 1 Substance (Cocaine).
He was later released on an undertaking, with a future court date.
