A 21-year-old Antigonish woman arrested in connection with a robbery at a town business is expected to return to court later in February.

Police only charged one person in the case.

Stewart made her first appearance in the case in Antigonish Provincial Court on Wednesday.
Her lawyer asked to have the matter adjourned.
It is scheduled to resume on Feb. 24.
Stewart was released on conditions shortly after her arrest, and remains free on conditions.
