Police have charged a man with the armed robbery of Ulverstone's Lighthouse Hotel earlier this month.

Early on Sunday May 2nd, it's alleged he stormed gaming area of the Victoria Street premises wearing a balaclava, demanding cash from a female staff member while holding a firearm and eventually fleeing on foot towards the train line.

The 31-year-old was arrested at his residence in Penguin on Monday after apparently attempting to evade police and crashing his vehicle into a power pole.

He was due to front an out-of-hours court hearing last night.
