LETHBRIDGE – Bail has been revoked for a 28-year-old Lethbridge woman, charged in connection with an alleged home invasion and assault on her 87-year-old grandfather.

However, immediately after the revocation hearing for Stacey Carlson on Thursday, Sept. 13, a second bail hearing proceeded, with Judge Jerry LeGrandeur opting to reserve his decision until next week. After hearing submissions from the Crown and defence, LeGrandeur explained that he needed time to consider their arguments and review certain case law.

It’s alleged that Carlson breached the release conditions that she was granted bail on in August. Due to a publication ban, details of the alleged breach cannot be revealed.

Carlson’s release conditions were that she report to the Lethbridge Police Service once a week, that she not consume any drugs or alcohol unless prescribed by a medical professional, and that she not attend the municipality of Taber – unless she is passing through on Highway 3 or for court appearances.

Carlson was arrested along with 22-year-old Heinrich Froese – who remains in custody after being denied bail – and both face charges of break/enter commit robbery, aggravated assault, and assault with a weapon.

According to Taber Police, they were called to a home along the 5800 block of 52 Street in Taber around 1:20 a.m. on Wednesday, July 11. They say an 87-year-old man found at the scene had been beaten and robbed of money, and that he was transported to the Taber hospital and later the Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge.

While there is currently no update on the victim’s status, police did note through a social media post in July that they expected he would be released from hospital soon.
