A woman arrested by the North Battleford RCMP gang unit failed to appear in court on drug and weapons charges.
Amanda Wahobin, 31, was scheduled to make her first appearance in North Battleford Provincial Court Nov. 9 but didn’t show and a bench warrant to hold for her arrest was issued. On Sept. 20 she was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of methamphetamine, possession of hydromorphone and weapons offences. When she was arrested she was wanted on warrants for property offences, possession of crystal meth and failing to appear in court.
Wahobin’s two co-accused from her September arrest appeared in court Nov. 9. Kyle Caron, 40, and Dean Lafreniere, 48, are also charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of methamphetamine, possession of hydromorphone and weapons offences.
Wahobin, Caron and Lafreniere were arrested in September when the Saskatchewan RCMP Crime Reduction Team (CRT) in North Battleford raided a home, a vehicle and a hotel room, after a two-month investigation. In July the CRT unit had launched an investigation targeting drug activity in North Battleford.
Wahobin’s bench warrant to hold was adjourned to Nov. 30. Both Caron and Lafreniere are scheduled to appear next in North Battelford Provincial Court Nov. 30.
