Baptiste and Delainey Sunchild Moosomin, 23, were arrested April 4. Battlefords RCMP say that an unknown man entered a residence and demanded vehicle keys from the property owner. The suspect was given keys to a 2002 white Buick Century. Police recovered the vehicle not long after and arrested Moosomin and Baptiste.

Moosomin had a show cause hearing scheduled today but it was adjourned to May 13. He is charged with stealing keys with a knife, resisting a peace officer, theft of a vehicle, break and enter, and mischief/property damage under $5,000. He also has charges from December 2019 including carrying a concealed weapon (knife and bear spray).

Baptiste was charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police during a pursuit, resisting a peace officer, possession of a vehicle under $5,000 by crime, and failing to comply with probation conditions. Baptiste also has charges from January including driving a vehicle while being pursued by police, driving a vehicle in a manner dangerous to the public, possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace, failing to comply with a probation order not to possess weapons, and two counts of failing to appear in court.

The charges against Baptiste and Moosomin haven’t been proven in court.
