An armed robbery suspect still hasn't seen the inside of a courtroom

Nelson armed robbery suspect’s court appearance delayed

There’s another court delay for the man accused in two Nelson armed robberies.

There’s another court delay for the man accused in two Nelson armed robberies.

Andrew Stevenson was expected in Nelson provincial court Monday for a bail hearing, but his lawyer, Ken Wyllie, was ill. Another lawyer was expected to ask for an adjournment to June 10 on his behalf.

It’s not clear yet if he will continue to be held in Nelson police cells or be transferred to Kamloops. Nor is it clear if he will appear in person or by video link when he finally does make his first appearance.

Stevenson faces 15 counts including unlawfully discharging a firearm, robbery, and break and enter. He was injured prior to being taken into custody and at a previous court date, Wyllie indicated Stevenson is on crutches. His co-accused, Kristi Kalmikoff, was released on $40,000 bail.

Both are charged in the hold-ups of Kootenay Currency Exchange on April 13 and the Nelson and District Credit Union on April 25 and break-ins in Castlegar on April 18.
