N.B. man accused of going to OLCN with semi-auto and bag of ammo has court appearance

Robin Wuttunee allegedly went to Onion Lake Cree Nation with a semi-automatic rifle and a bag full of ammunition

LLOYDMINSTER – A North Battleford man who allegedly went to Onion Lake Cree Nation with a semi-automatic rifle and a bag full of ammunition had another court appearance Wednesday.

Defence Andrew Lyster asked the court for an adjournment in 43-year-old Robin Wuttunee’s matter but didn’t state the reason for the required adjournment. Crown Prosecutor Oryn Holm didn’t object to the adjournment and Judge Michelle Baldwin adjourned the matter until April 20.

Wuttunee was arrested July 17, 2021, on Onion Lake after the Nation’s security checkpoint allegedly found him with a weapon and ammunition in a duffle bag. The Onion Lake RCMP were called and Wuttunee was charged with a dozen weapons-related offences and three counts of failing to comply with a release order. At the time, he was wanted on multiple outstanding arrest warrants in Alberta and was prohibited from possessing firearms.

Wuttunee was denied bail in August 2021 on secondary grounds. This means that detention is necessary for the protection or safety of the public including whether there is a substantial likelihood the accused will commit a further offence or interfere with the administration of justice.

The charges against Wuttunee haven’t been proven in court.
