Robbery Suspect Identified

Sarnia police have now identified a man wanted in an armed robbery at Wellington Pharmacy December 6.

Police are looking for 38-year-old Nicholas Cottrelle of London.

Two masked men, one carrying a machete, stole medication and fled on foot just before 5pm.

Constable John Sottosanti says Cottrelle is wanted for armed robbery, disguise with intent, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and conspiracy to commit an indictable offence.

“If you do encounter this person or know where he is you’re please asked not to approach him as he may be dangerous, but rather contact police at 911,” says Sottosanti.

No one was injured during the robbery. The investigation continues and police are still trying to identify the second suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sarnia Police Service Criminal Investigation Branch at 519-344-8861 ext. 5300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
