Lloydminster, Alberta – On Jul. 13, 2019, Lloydminster RCMP responded to a theft complaint from a business in the 5000 block of 44 street. A traffic stop was completed with the suspect vehicle; a loaded sawed-off shot gun was found in the passenger side of the vehicle, and an SKS-style rifle was located in the trunk, as well as ammunition for the weapons.
Gena Marie Margret Lewis (29) of Onion Lake, Saskatchewan, and Destiny Dawn Littlewolfe (32) of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan are each charged with 16 Criminal Code Offences including:
• Theft under $5000 contrary to Section 334 of the Criminal Code of Canada
• Possession of property obtained by crime contrary to Section 355 of the Criminal Code of Canada
• Possession of weapon for dangerous purpose contrary to Section 88 of the Criminal Code of Canada
• Possession of substance contrary to Section 4 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act
Additionally, Lewis is charged with Assaulting a peace officer contrary to Section 270 of the Criminal Code of Canada.
“It was a great team effort for the Detachment,” says Corporal Ken Rhodenizer of the Lloydminster RCMP. “It’s important that we keep these guns off the streets and out of the hands of criminals.”
Property crime is a priority for the Detachment, and the Lloydminster RCMP encourages all members of the community to be aware of crime reduction strategies: such as locking your vehicle doors and removing all valuables when you are parking it for an extended period of time.
“Everyone is encouraged to watch out for their neighbours and report any suspicious activity to the Police,” according to Const. Michael Hagel of the Lloydminster Detachment. “If something doesn’t feel right, don’t hesitate to contact the Detachment.”
Lewis and Littlewolfe have been remanded in custody until August 1, 2019 at Lloydminster Provincial Court.
