·1 min read

Charges were withdrawn against a woman accused of participating in the assault and robbery of a Meadow Lake man.

The Crown withdrew several charges against 36-year-old Lana Aubichon, including robbery with a firearm, assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement and uttering threats.

Aubichon and Rocky Fiddler, 36, were arrested in October 2020 after Meadow Lake RCMP received a call that a man had been robbed and assaulted. He suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries.

The RCMP tactical Emergency Response Team was called in to arrest Aubichon and Fiddler. They conducted a high-risk search warrant at a home on the 400 block of 7 Street West in Meadow Lake.

When police searched the residence they found ammunition, a quantity of controlled substances and a number of items allegedly linking Fiddler and Aubichon to the armed robbery and assault.

Fiddler was charged with robbery with a firearm, assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement, and uttering threats. His last appearance in Meadow Lake Provincial Court was on March 8 and the matter was adjourned to April 12.
