Sentencing will take place in June for a Montana First Nation member found guilty for his role in a home invasion on the reserve in May 2010.

Eldon Saddleback Jr., 21, was found guilty in Wetaskiwin provincial court on Friday of numerous charges stemming from the incident, including aggravated assault, robbery using a firearm, break and enter of a residence, wearing a disguise with the intent to commit a crime, pointing a firearm and a variety of other weapons charges.

Const. Perry Cardinal, media liaison officer for the Hobbema RCMP, said the charges result from an incident at 1:50 a.m. on May 25, 2010, in which four people armed with guns banged on the door and then forced their way into the home. The occupants were threatened and two shots were fired before the invaders ran off, Cardinal said in a news release issued on Monday.

Saddleback remains in custody pending his sentencing hearing, set for Wetaskiwin provincial court on June 22.
