A fugitive wanted in connection with a home invasion near Sylvan Lake made her first court appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday, via closed-circuit TV from the Calgary Remand Centre.
Ashley Chambers, 23, was sought by Sylvan Lake RCMP in connection with an incident at the home of a well-known businessman on June 3. Chambers turned herself in on Sunday to RCMP in Airdrie.
She has been charged with nine offences, including armed robbery; unlawful confinement of two people; using a firearm to commit an indictable offence; break and enter of a dwelling; pointing a firearm at a woman in the house; unlawful possession of a loaded, restricted firearm; and three breaches of release conditions arising from older charges.
Sylvan Lake allege that she and Andrew Waunch, 24, entered the home located just outside of the Town of Sylvan Lake and demanded property from the occupants. Waunch has remained in custody since his arrest on June 10 in connection with that incident as well as other allegations, including two separate carjackings.
Waunch made his first court appearance on Friday and is scheduled back in court on June 28.
Chambers is due back in court on the same day for a bail hearing and to enter pleas on the charges she faces.
