PENTICTON - The man who led police on a recent manhunt in the South Okanagan is in hospital and unable to make a routine court appearance.

Ronald Arthur Teneycke’s counsel, Michael Welsh, appeared in court without the accused, and was not in a position to speak to a bail hearing. Welsh also noted he lacked sufficient disclosure in the charges.

No reason was given for Teneycke’s hospital admission.

Ronald Teneycke is accused of robbery, several firearms offences and numerous probation breaches. He most recently breached an intermittent jail term and was apprehended after a police manhunt that resulted in numerous new charges being laid against him.

Tenecyke’s next appearance has been scheduled for September 23.
