A North Okanagan man accused of threatening a sex trade worker, is now facing ten charges in all.
37 year old Curtis Sagmoen was in Vernon provincial court Thursday, where a charge of mischief under $5,000 was laid.
Dan McLaughlin, Communications Counsel with the BC Prosecution Service outlined the charge in an email to CJIB News: “This charge alleges that Curtis Wayne Sagmoen on or about the 19th day of July, 2017, at or near Falkland, in Province of British Columbia, did commit mischief by willfully placing spikes or nails on a board or spikebelt to damage the tires of motor vehicle of a value not in excess of five thousand dollars contrary to Section 430(4) of the Criminal Code.”
Charges of assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm were laid against Sagmoen earlier this month after alleged incidents with two online escort workers last August.
The suspect also faces charges of pointing a firearm, uttering threats, and disguising his face with the intent to commit an offence from last August when a sex trade worker had a pre-arranged meeting with a man near Falkland.
Sagmoen remains in custody, with a bail hearing scheduled for next week.
The remains of 18 year old Traci Genereaux of Vernon were found by police on the Sagmoen farming property in Silver Creek on Salmon River Road last October, but no charges related to her death have been laid.
