Suspected Walmart arsonist heads to arraignment hearing

Suspected Walmart arsonist Nathan Colin Whynot made a brief appearance in Dawson Creek court on Jan. 12 for an arraignment hearing, which has been postponed to later this month.

After being caught on video surveillance committing a $1.38 million dollar arson in a Dawson Creek Wal-Mart last summer, Whynot attempted to plead guilty in October 2020, also firing his lawyer.

A new lawyer has not been appointed, with Whynot making an appearance in November to consult legal aid.

Judge David St. Pierre struck the guilty the plea from the record, along with attempted guilty pleas on other matters before the court, noting Whynot was attempting to get the matter over with no accountability.
