Saskatoon man seeks bail a third time

A Saskatoon man accused of committing a string of robberies across Central Saskatchewan was released on bail and rearrested weeks later in December after trying to flee from police in Swift Current.

Cody Kemick, 37, is trying to get bail for a third time. Kemick was re-arrested by Swift Current police in December for break and enter, breaching release conditions, and failing to stop for police. He appeared in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Dec. 31, 2020, and Jan. 6, 2021, seeking bail, again. The matters were adjourned and he has another show cause hearing scheduled in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Jan. 13.

Kemick was initially arrested May 2019 and charged with three counts of break and enter, 10 counts of possession of stolen property, one count of theft and one count of mischief.

Kemick was released on bail but failed to appear in court in October 2020 and was arrested a second time. At a bail hearing on Nov. 27 he was granted bail a second time.

He is accused of numerous robberies from businesses, residences and vehicles in Saskatoon, Unity, Lucky Lake, Dinsmore, Rosetown, Kerrobert, Aberdeen, Humboldt, Milden, and Conquest.

According to RCMP, between Feb. 4 and April 26, 2020, Saskatchewan RCMP received multiple reports of break-and-enters, thefts and property-related offences across Central Saskatchewan. Several police agencies teamed up to investigate and evidence led them to Kemick.

On May 2, 2020, Saskatoon Provincial RCMP GIS, along with police officers from Saskatoon, Outlook, Rosetown and Humboldt detachments, raided Kemick’s Saskatoon home. At the residence police seized about $35,000 worth of stolen property, including tools, computers, electronic devices, ammunition, cheques, hair salon products, lottery tickets and clothing.

At the residence police also arrested Chantal Dubois, 41, of Saskatoon. She was charged with one count of break and enter, and seven counts of possession of stolen property.

Dubois had more appearances in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Dec. 16 and Dec. 23 and is now scheduled to appear on Feb. 2.
