Trial has been scheduled for a man accused of holding up an Innisfail pub at gunpoint.

The robbery happened on the night of Oct. 5, 2017. Shots were fired and cash was stolen but no one was injured.

Six months passed before Kyle Zachery Hosli-Rombough, 25, was arrested in April and charged with 15 counts including robbery with a firearm, pointing a firearm, unlawfully discharging a firearm, assault with a weapon, possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle and possession of stolen property.

Hosli-Rombough entered not guilty pleas in Red Deer court last week and will go to trial on Dec. 12.


Two Sylvan Lake men arrested in relation to a fraud/theft ring at Edmonton International Airport were recently sentenced to 135 days behind bars.

Four people were arrested last August after Mounties were called to a report of a credit card fraud in progress at a hotel at the airport. A subsequent search of the suspects’ vehicles resulted in seizure of stolen credit cards, identifications, computers and mail.

Chance Muranaka, 44, and Travis Muranaka, 40, pleaded guilty to charges relating to heft, property and drug offences.

Their sentences were satisfied by time already spent in custody.


The man charged for crashing into a store in south Red Deer faces a preliminary hearing later this year.

The Dollar Tree store at Bower Plaza had a stolen truck crash into its front doors on March 16 of this year. Six parked cars and a police cruiser were also crashed into as Mounties pursued the suspect. Fortunately, no one was injured.

Jesse James Leckner, 27, was later arrested at an apartment building at the bottom of the North Hill.

In addition to this incident, RCMP say Leckner faces further charges in relation to a series of incidents involving a stolen truck, flight from police and two gas and dash reports from February 5 – 24.

His hearing for the Dollar Tree incident is scheduled for December 10-11. He also has a preliminary hearing in relation to the gas and dash incidents booked for Oct 26.
