Barrie Police Service received information from Edmonton Police Service in regards to multiple suspects staying at a hotel in Barrie.

The suspects are believed to be involved in a country-wide crime spree through British Columbia (BC) and Alberta, leading into Ontario.

Earlier this month, police in BC had attempted to arrest three parties at a hotel, but were unsuccessful when the parties fled the scene in their vehicle.

During the investigation firearms were located as well as evidence of other criminal activity. 

Warrants had been sought for the three parties for various fraud and property related offences.

On Sunday, June 12, 2016 Barrie Police Investigative Services attended the Comfort Inn located at 75 Hart Drive, in the City of Barrie, and confirmed two of the wanted persons were staying at the hotel.  

The male party exited the hotel and fled the scene in his vehicle evading police. A short time later a female exited the hotel and was placed under arrest.

A 23-year-old female of No Fixed Address has been charged with:

  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime X 6
  • Make Forged Document
  • Possession Instruments for Forgery
  • Fail to Comply with Recognizance X 2
  • Fail to Comply with Probation Order X 2

Wanted: Robert Allard, 28-year-old male of No Fixed Address on the following charges:

  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle
  • Flight while Pursued by Peace Officer
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime X 6
  • Make Forged Document
  • Possession Instruments for Forgery
  • Disobey Court Order

(Both parties also have outstanding warrants from British Columbia and Alberta for similar offences.)

At this time Barrie Police Service believe the male is no longer in the Barrie area and there is currently no concern for public safety.
