A Red Deer mother of two children will remain in custody pending the outcome of 13 charges, including possessing stolen property and a weapon dangerous to the public.

Judge Darrell Riemer denied bail to Natasha Verna Clark, 28, on Friday in Red Deer provincial court.

Clark has been in custody since Oct. 20, when she was arrested by Lacombe Police Service. At the time of her arrest, she was out on bail on older charges.

Riemer also granted Crown prosecutor David Inglis’s application to revoke Clark’s bail from her prior judicial interim release.

Clark is charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of break-in tools, attempting to break into a house, two counts of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, possession of a controlled substance and six counts of breach of conditions.

Lacombe Police allege she and a co-accused, Sean David Porter, 32, of Red Deer, were observed attempting to enter parked vehicles and the front doors of several houses.

Porter also faces charges of possession of break-in tools, possession of stolen property, attempting to break into a house and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.

The two accused will next appear in Red Deer provincial court on Jan. 7, 2015.
