Randy Biggin pleads guilty to armed robbery, break-in charges
CORNER BROOK, N.L. — Randy Biggin is facing a lengthy period of incarceration for the armed robbery of a Corner Brook gas station and a break-in at a Massey Drive business.
He’ll find out just how long that will be when he appears in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador for a sentencing hearing Aug. 1.
Biggin, 25, entered guilty pleas to three of four charges against him during an arraignment appearance June 3.
The armed robbery at the former Ultramar on Mount Bernard Avenue took place April 28, 2018.
Biggin was arrested a short time after the incident and charged with armed robbery, being disguised with intent to commit an offence and possession of a weapon — a knife — for a dangerous purpose. He pleaded guilty to the first two charges and the third was conditionally withdrawn by the Crown.
He also pleaded guilty to the single charge of breaking into Targett Trucking on Massey Drive on April 14, 2018.
The Crown and defence counsel for Biggin will present an agreed-upon statement of facts in the case during the sentencing hearing. A pre-sentence report has been requested.
