Sentence awaits Mirror man next month

Facing more than a dozen charges of theft and possession of stolen property from Bashaw, Stettler and other towns

Facing more than a dozen charges of theft and possession of stolen property from Bashaw, Stettler and other towns in central Alberta, a Mirror man will have to wait almost two months to find his verdict.

Sentencing for Trever Sten Haggkvist was rescheduled for Aug. 22 in Stettler Provincial Court.

The case was in court this month, though his lawyer and the regular Crown prosecutor were unable to attend.

“It is my understanding that they will all be here on that date,” said lawyer Dan Wilson, appearing as an agent for the lawyer.

“It is my understanding that this case has been resolved.”

Next month, he will face seven counts of possession of stolen property, four counts of theft under $5,000, and one count each of unauthorized possession of property and mischief and damage under $5,000.

Haggkvist, then 38, was arrested and charged last October by Bashaw RCMP with various counts and also by Stettler RCMP with 13 thefts and one case of mischief.

During the investigation, Bashaw RCMP recovered an estimated $75,000 in allegedly stolen items.

Police located one Bobcat Skid Steer, two ATVs, one UTV and more items that were also reported stolen from Innisfail, Lacombe, Morningside, Mirror and Erskine.
