Cortez allegedly robbed the Baker Street business of $30,000 worth of merchandise on Sept. 11. Police said Cortez fled the scene in a stolen SUV with Danielle Charlton, who was killed when the car crashed the same day outside Hope.

The two charges Cortez faces in Nelson are on a long list of offences he had already been charged with by Chilliwack and Revelstoke police.
