A 39-year-old Sheaves Cove man charged in connection with an armed home invasion and theft in Piccadilly last weekend is going to jail for a previous offence.

The 60-day sentence handed to Kevin Scott Lecointre on Friday was in relation to a March 25 offence for breaching a recognizance not to drink alcohol.

Friday, Judge Lynn E. Cole set a new court date for Feb. 2 relating to an assault with a weapon charge that occurred in Sheaves Cove on June 8, 2014. Lecointre was also charged with breaching probation at that time.

In relation to the latest incident, RCMP officers responded to a call at 1:14 a.m. on Dec. 12 at a home on the main road in Piccadilly. Police said two armed intruders assaulted two residents, who were taken to Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital for treatment of injuries that were non-life threatening. An undisclosed amount of money was stolen.  

Lecointre is charged with assault with a weapon, two charges of failure to comply with probation orders, three charges of breaching a recognizance, breaking and entering with intent, disguised with intent to commit an offence and aggravated assault.

No pleas have been entered on those matters.
