Lethbridge Woman Pleads Guilty to Gun Smuggling in U.S.

Wednesday, June 15th 2011 10:07

A Lethbridge woman has admitted to trying to help smuggle 12 guns bought in Montana back into Canada.

A Lethbridge woman is facing 10 years in prison and a fine of $250,000 for her part in an alleged gun smuggling scheme. Yesterday, in a Montana courtroom, Caley Dawn Sinclair admitted to trying to help smuggle the guns that were bought in Montana back to Canada. In a plea deal, the 23 year old pleaded guilty to one count of attempted illegal export while the two other counts against her will be dismissed at sentencing as part of the deal.  It's alleged that Sinclair, and co-accused Harley Clifford Combres attended a gun show south of broder in March. Combres bought 11 guns, while Sinclair held the money and took some of the weapons to their vehicle. They were arrested later that day and Police sezied the guns. Sinclair remains in custody ahead of her sentencing in September.  Combres is still awaiting trial, while a 3rd person, Shawn Aaron Locke was arrested in Lethbridge and he goes to trial in August.
