A woman who was caught after robbing the Big Eddy Market with a sword pleaded guilty in Revelstoke court last week.

Danielle Jade Wiebe, 32, pleaded guilty to robbery, as well as several other charges, in court on Thursday, Apr. 4. She appeared via video from the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women, where Judge Vincent Hogan ordered her held until her sentencing occurs.

Wiebe pleaded guilty to three separate incidents. The first happened on Sept. 11, 2012, when she stole a cheque book from the Revelstoke Legion. She also pleaded guilty to stealing a cheque from a vehicle the day after. Finally, she pleaded guilty to the robbery of the Big Eddy Market on Mar. 12, 2013.

Judge Hogan ordered a pre-sentence report be prepared; sentencing has yet to be scheduled. Despite Wiebe’s pleas to be released, he ordered she remain in custody until that time, saying that she is “crippled by drugs and needs to be cleaned up.”

“I can’t have any confidence she would report or stay out of further trouble,” he said. “It’s in her best interests to be detained until this matter is done.”
