BARRIE, ON- Avery Nickerson isn’t going anywhere for a while.
The 35-year-old was arrested last week in connection to a trio of bank robberies that occurred in Parry Sound and Orillia. In all three, a note had been passed to the teller after a man had walked into the bank, usually in the afternoon around 3:30.
The man in each robbery got away with undisclosed amount of cash. Nickerson was named by police as the suspect after the pair of robberies in Orillia, which took place two days after a robbery in Parry Sound.
He was arrested last Wednesday in Barrie, and brought to Orillia for a video bail hearing. He was not granted bail, and will now be staying in custody in Penetanguishene until his next court date, which is on August 1 in Barrie.
He will be appearing by video for that date as well.
He is facing multiple charges, including two counts of robbery, and two counts of disguise with intent in connection to the Orillia robberies.
For Parry Sound, he is facing a charge of robbery with violence and two counts of failing to comply with probation.
