Still with the courts, a trial date has been set for a 100 Mile House man who is charged in connection with a bank robbery in Williams Lake.
40-year old Christopher Swain is due back in court on Oct. 21.
Swain, who has elected to be tried by Supreme Court Justice alone, was ordered to stand trial following a Preliminary Inquiry in December.
He’s charged with one count each of Robbery and Disguising his Face with Intent to Commit an Offence.
Williams Lake RCMP responded to a robbery in progress at the CIBC bank on Oliver Street back on Nov. 28, 2017.
Witnesses told police at the time that a man entered the bank and demanded money from the teller.
No one was hurt and a suspect was arrested without further incident.
(Editor’s Note: this story incorrectly reported the robbery incident of having occurred last year and has been updated.)
