City Man Accused of Staging His Own Disappearance Enters Guilty Plea

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The 25-year old Lethbridge man who went missing earlier this year and turned up in Calgary a couple days later following a massive search effort, has pleaded guilty to public mischief.

 

Matthew Aaron Robillard left his west Lethbridge home on the morning of January 31st, but never arrived at work in Picture Butte. The search for him involved both Lethbridge and Calgary police services, which cost them in the range of tens of thousands of dollars. On February 2nd around 3:20am, Robillard contacted police and was found at a northeast Calgary hotel.

 

An investigation by Regional Police resulted in the public mischief charge, with police saying that Robillard staged the abduction, including injuries to himself and damage to his car, in order to cover up a significant financial loss.

 

Sentencing has been adjourned until June 27th, allowing time for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
