Robbery suspect arrested


A Kawartha Lakes police officer was in the right place at the right time when he spotted a robbery suspect fleeing from a William Street South business in Lindsay yesterday morning.

Police say a man had entered the business just after 11am and demanded money.

He allegedly threatened that he had a weapon and after a brief struggle with an employee, fled the store.

That’s when the officer saw the suspect and arrested him after a short foot pursuit. 

Charged with robbery and possession of property obtained by crime is 28-year-old Cody William Fountain of Lindsay.
