A bail hearing for a Meadow Lake man charged with robbery and several firearms offences was adjourned.
Many cases are being adjourned due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing a backlog. Bail hearings and sentencing for in-custody accused are continuing by telephone and video-conferencing at the 13 permanent court locations in Saskatchewan that remain open. Court cases for non-custody accused and docket proceedings at circuit court locations were adjourned until after May 31.
Cory Bouvier, 30, had an appearance scheduled in Meadow Lake Provincial Court May 19. He was arrested in April by the Saskatchewan Emergency Response Team (ERT) after police received calls about an armed man at a home on the 200 block of 2nd Street West.
At the time, the ERT was already headed to Meadow Lake with a search warrant for a home on the 500 block of 6 Avenue West after reports of multiple threats with firearms.
At this home the ERT arrested Cory Bouvier and Monica Bouvier. There they found a woman with a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle, a collapsible baton and several knives. Monica Bouvier was charged with weapons offences, robbery, mischief and obstruction of a peace officer.
The ERT also arrested three people at the first home they were called to and seized a weapon as well as a small amount of cocaine. There, they arrested Cassidy Regan, 29, and charged him with several firearms offences, uttering threats, and breach of probation.
RCMP haven’t said if the arrests at the two homes the same evening are connected.
Monica Bouvier was released from custody on April 30 and she is scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on July 13 to enter a plea.
Regan is scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on May 25 for a bail hearing.
Cory Bouvier is now scheduled to appear in Meadow Lake Provincial Court on June 1 for a bail hearing.
