UPDATE: brief court appearances for Nelson armed robbery suspects

We now know the names of the couple charged with the armed robbery in Nelson Friday.

33 year old Andrew Stevenson and 26 year Krista Kalmikoff were arrested after a police chase.

They are charged with one count each of robbery although other charges may follow.

Stevenson could not physically be in court today because he’s in hospital. He sustained significant injuries when he jumped from a bridge following that police chase. He appeared via telephone.

Kalmikoff – who is from Nelson – remains in custody and she will likely have a bail hearing Wednesday following a quickly adjourned hearing Monday.

The Nelson District Credit Union was robbed Friday afternoon.

The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) is involved and will probe the circumstances and police actions – or inactions – surrounding the injury of the suspect.

Until that is concluded police are not talking.
