Bench war­rants is­sued for two men ac­cused of ATM theft in April

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - COMING UP - SARAH LADIK

Two of the four men ac­cused of pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty in con­nec­tion with an ATM heist ear­lier this year are at large.

Moose Jaw Pro­vin­cial Court heard on Tues­day that Robert Keith Hill, 36, of Keg River, had not made con­tact with his de­fence coun­sel, and a war­rant was is­sued for his ar­rest.

Brian James Hunt, 48, of Ed­mon­ton also has an out­stand­ing war­rant, is­sued May 3. At around 8:45 a.m. April 1, Moose Jaw RCMP re­ceived a re­port of a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle south­west of the city. When they ar­rived in the area, they found four men in pos­ses­sion of two ATMs and a large sum of cash. The men were all ar­rested, at the time, for pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime.

Once it was de­ter­mined that the ATMs were in fact the ones re­ported stolen from Mo­saic Place hours ear­lier, RCMP turned the in­ves­ti­ga­tion over to the Moose Jaw Po­lice.

The court heard that Nor­man Rus­sell Daniels, 50, of Ed­mon­ton has been in hospi­tal in Al­berta, and so was un­able to en­ter a plea as of Tues­day. The fourth man, Brian James Hunt, 48, of Ed­mon­ton, was sen­tenced to six months for the charge of break­ing and en­ter­ing, as well as three months — to be served con­sec­u­tively — for be­ing at large with­out an ex­cuse. He was given credit for four-and-a-half months time spent in re­mand, so will serve a fur­ther four-and-a-half months start­ing June 28.
