A Saskatoon woman who helped orchestrate a “staged” robbery at the HomeSense store where she used to work has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years probation.
Cheyanne Anderson, 21, pleaded guilty to public mischief and theft under $5,000 and was sentenced this week in Saskatoon Provincial Court.
During Odishaw’s sentencing hearing in October, court heard how Anderson and boyfriend Braden Odishaw arranged to steal money from the HomeSense store on May 24, 2015. The Crown said Odishaw gave a note to Anderson, who was working the till, that said he was robbing the store. She gave him $200 and then provided false information to police, prosecutor Barbara Herder said.
Odishaw received a six-month conditional sentence order, essentially a jail sentence served in the community under strict conditions, followed by a year of probation. He was also ordered to pay back the $200 that he stole from HomeSense.
