A Lethbridge man already denied bail on several charges, including robbery and unlawful confinement, is expected to apply for his release a second time.
Kyle Young Pine’s lawyer, Claudia Connolly of Lethbridge, told court last week she hopes to schedule a bail review in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s Bench. In the meantime, however, the accused remains in custody at the Lethbridge Correctional Centre, and is set to return to provincial court June 5 to set a trial date.
Young Pine, 29, is charged with robbery, unlawful confinement, disguised with intent, possession of a stolen credit card and using a stolen credit card. The charges stem from a robbery at a Lethbridge hotel, and subsequent search of property in the 4000 block of 43 Street South.
Police reported that about 7 p.m. Oct. 16 a 28-year-old man was robbed of his wallet, clothes, cellphone and vaping items at gunpoint. Lethbridge police got a description of a suspect vehicle and tracked it to a home in the Six Mile Coulee area of south Lethbridge. The vehicle left the home and went to Exhibition Park, where police arrested several people.
Young Pine is co-accused with Cory Nelson Amyotte, who faces charges of robbery, unlawful confinement and being disguised with intent. He was granted bail in March, then later failed to appear in court and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
