OPP arrest Dundalk woman wanted in Barrie2021年12月2日

A woman has been arrested in connection with a theft and assault at a Barrie pharmacy last month.

The 34-year-old Dundalk woman was found Monday by Chatsworth OPP, after receiving numerous tips.

On March 28, a Barrie pharmacy employee was punched several times in the face trying to stop a shoplifter.

City police were called to the Rexall on Essa Road shortly after 5 p.m. and told that a woman had selected items in the store and concealed them in a bag she was carrying.

Security alarms went off when she left the pharmacy and a store employee stopped a woman outside.

The employee was assaulted and a woman fled on foot, police said, and was last seen running west on Coughlin Road.

About $500 in stolen merchandise was left behind. The pharmacy worker received minor injuries.

The arrested woman will remain in the custody of OPP, as she was wanted on several outstanding charges there.

She also faces theft and assault charges in Barrie.
