A second man is set to stand trial for his alleged involvement in a 2018 break and enter and police chase. Andrew Schurman will be back in court in Grande Prairie from February 9 to 12, 2021.
Schurman is facing four charges, including kidnapping, break and enter to commit assault, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and mischief.
On July 3rd, 2018 two men allegedly broke into a home in South Patterson around 3:45 a.m., assaulted someone and forced them into a vehicle that led officers on a chase that ended south of Crooked Creek.
In July 2019, the other man involved, Kendall Kruger, was given a four and a half year sentence less time served of 18 months for breaking and enter and failing to stop for police. He was also given a lifetime firearms ban and a one-year license suspension.
Kruger was originally also charged with kidnapping, uttering threats, resisting a police officer, mischief under $5,000 and carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Those charges were all withdrawn.
