Warrant issued for woman who fails to appear in N.B. court on weapons, drug charges

·1 min read

A woman arrested by the North Battleford RCMP gang unit failed to appear in court Nov. 30 and a warrant was issued.

Amanda Wohobin, 31, failed to appear Nov. 9 and a warrant to hold was issued. She again failed to appear on Nov. 30 so the warrant was activated.

The RCMP Crime Reduction Team arrested Wahobin, along with Kyle Caron, 40, and Dean Lafreniere, 48, on Sept. 20 after police raided a home in North Battleford, a vehicle and a hotel room.

The arrests followed a two-month investigation into drug activity in North Battleford.

The three were charged with three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and weapons offences.

Caron and Lafreniere appeared in North Battleford Provincial Court on Nov. 30 and their matters were adjourned to Feb. 1, 2021, for election and plea.
