A woman suspected of committing her second robbery this year has had her bail hearing rescheduled.

Jeanine Monica Bungay, 27, was back in provincial court in St. John’s Monday.

Duty counsel Jane Fitzpatrick asked to have the case set over until next week to allow more time to prepare for the bail hearing. Crown prosecutor Mike Murray and Judge Colin Flynn agreed.

The hearing will be Dec. 17.

Bungay was arrested Friday night after she allegedly held up CJ’s Convenience in Foxtrap with a knife.

She faces five charges:  armed robbery; being disguised with intent to commit a crime; possessing a weap-on for a dangerous purpose and two counts of breaching court orders.

Her arrest comes almost seven months after she was accused of committing another armed robbery.

She was picked up by police on May 21 in connection with a robbery at For Your Convenience store in Conception Bay South.

She was allegedly armed with a knife when she entered the store and demanded money.

At the time, Bungay was said to have been seven months pregnant. She was released from custody shortly after her initial court appearance.

She entered not-guilty pleas in that case and is scheduled to go to trial in January.
