Paradise woman accused of another armed robbery

A woman who was accused of holding up a convenience store in Conception Bay South earlier this year while several-months pregnant is once again in trouble with the law.

Jeanine Monica Bungay was arrested Friday night. She is accused committing an armed robbery at CJ’s Convenience in Foxtrap. Court documents allege Bungay was carrying a knife at the time of the incident and took cash from the store.

The 27-year-old is now facing five new charges — armed robbery, concealing her identify during the commission of a crime, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes, and two counts for recognizance breaches.

Bungay was previously arrested this year in connection with an armed robbery at a different convenience store in C.B.S. — For Your Convenience. That incident took place on May 21. She was allegedly armed with a knife when she entered the store and demanded cash.

Bungay was reportedly seven-months pregnant when lawyer Randy Piercey entered not guilty pleas on her behalf in late June to charges of armed robbery and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. She was released on bail in early June.

That matter was due to be the subject of a one-day trial on Oct. 25, but the case was postponed until Jan. 6 and Jan. 16, 2014. A Charter of Rights application has since been filed in relation to that matter.

Bungay appeared in Weekend and Statutory Holidays Court Saturday morning in St. John’s wearing a white jumpsuit. The Crown was opposed to Bungay’s release. Judge James Walsh agreed to setover the matter until Monday.
