Onion Lake man facing organized crime charges in Prince Albert

An Onion Lake man and three other people are being charged following a lengthy organized crime investigation.

In February, the RCMP Prince Albert Crime Reduction Team charged a man and two women in Sturgeon Lake First Nation with weapon offences and seized several weapons including a sawed-off shotgun and a spear gun. It was part of a larger investigation into organized crime activity in the area which began in October 2019.

Following that investigation more people have been charged including 28-year-old Jesse Dillon from Onion Lake. He was arrested at the Regina Provincial Correctional Centre on April 10. He is being charged with 14 charges overall including traffic of a controlled substance, recruit for a criminal organization and fabricating evidence. He will appear in court on June 16.

Shania Yooya from Prince Albert, 24, Brennan Sanderson from Prince Albert, 28, and Raini Henderson from Nipawin, 30, were all charged in the February investigation and are now facing additional charges.

Yooya has 12 charges against her and will appear in court on June 20. Henderson is facing a criminal organization charge and will appear in court on September 14. Sanderson faces eight charges and will appear in court on August 24.
