As expected Crown Counsel has now brought more charges against Andrew Stevenson.
He is one of two people accused in a rash of armed robberies in our region.
The 33 year old and his partner 25 year old Krista Kalmikoff are already facing multiple charges related to the robberies of the Nelson District Credit Union and Kootenay Currency Exchange.
The prosecution is now confirming more charges have been brought against Stevenson.
They relate to the armed robberies of Johnny’s Grocery at Robson and the Kootenay Savings Credit Union in Castlegar.
Stevenson -who was injured in the process of being arrested after the Nelson credit union robbery – has yet to enter a plea or appear in person at the Nelson court.
Kalmikoff has elected a jury trial.*
* An earlier version of this story erroneously stated that Kalmikoff had pleaded not guilty to her charges. By electing a trial she in fact intends to plead not guilty.
