Mounties’ Response Unit gets their woman

Woman tried to conceal her identity by providing a false name, and two knives were found hidden in her clothing.

  • Sep. 8, 2011 6:00 p.m.

Twenty-one-year-old Shawna Brittany Maranduk pleaded guilty to two counts of carrying a concealed weapon and failing to appear in court, and one count of obstructing a police officer when she appeared in court on Sept. 7.

The Community Response Unit (CRU), primarily tasked with seeking out wanted persons in the community, arrested Maranduk on Sept. 6 for outstanding warrants.

During the arrest,  she tried to conceal her identity by providing a false name, and two knives were found hidden in her clothing.

CRU had arrested Maranduk just weeks before on other warrants, but she was eventually released and failed to appear in court once again.

She recently completed a short jail term for breaching the terms of her probation order.

Maranduk received a 90 day custodial sentence as a result of her guilty plea.

“The Community Response Unit continues to monitor and track priority offenders in the city to maintain the RCMP’s commitment to ‘Safe Homes, Safe Communities,’” wrote Cpl. Donovan Tait in a news release.
