Crime Spree And Evading Police Net Lethbridge Man A Prison Sentence
Lethbridge: A Lethbridge man who went on a crime spree back in February gets three-years in prison.
Stephen Gerworsky, 21, pleaded guilty to a string of charges, including stealing his sister's vehicle, robbery and evading police. He was credited with the 60-days he spent in pre-trial custody.
About 8:30-pm on February 11th, Gerworsky took his sister's vehicle without permission. While police were trying to track down the vehicle, they got a driving complaint about a vehicle in Coaldale that matched the vehicle they were looking for
The vehicle was then spotted heading north on 43rd street where an officer tried to stop the driver. The vehicle fishtailed into the ditch but got back onto 43rd. At this point, police had to discontinue pursuit.
The driver of the vehicle then turned up at the Gas King in the 200-block of Mayor Magrath Drive, where he demanded money from two employees, struck one of them in the head with his fist and grabbed $300 from the tills.
Gerworsky then turned up in Taber where police picked up the chase. The suspect vehicle went off the road and Gerworsky was arrested by Taber police, charged with driving offences and turned over to Regional police.
