A guilty plea has been entered by a Melville woman, charged in a string of incidents in April.
In North Battleford Provincial Court yesterday (TUES), 30-year-old Verena Petruka, pled guilty to to two charges, including Discharging a Firearm with Intent, and she will be sentenced on November 9th.
On Monday (29th) her co-accused, 19-year-old Tristan Pinder, of Elk Point, Alberta, was committed to stand trial in Battleford Court of Queen’s Bench, though no date has been set.
On April 14th, RCMP say a theft from a gas station in Lashburn, involved a taxi van alleged to have been part of a robbery and assault in Regina, the previous evening.
Police spotted the vehicle on Highway 16, and pursued it until it stopped west of Delmas, where a firearm was discharged from the van, leading RCMP to respond in kind, and the van eventually became stuck in the ditch, leading to the arrests of Petruka and Pinder.
