Co-accused in cross-burning turns himself in

One of the young men charged in a Hants County cross-burning has turned himself in.

A warrant was put out for Nathan Rehberg, 20, after his grandparents withdrew their surety.

The grandparents withdrew the $5000 surety in Windsor court Wednesday, however they didn’t explain why they withdrew it. The surety was to keep Rehberg and his brother free while they awaited trial.

RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Brigdit Legere says he came in on his own accord.

“This morning at 9:30 Nathan Rehberg turned himself in to the Windsor RCMP detachment,” says Legere. “He arrived without counsel and he will be held in custody until his matters are disposed of in court.”

She says Rehberg came in with two friends. There’s still a possibility he may still be able to be released eventually. His trial is scheduled for November 10.

Rehburg and his 19-year-old brother were arrested after an interracial couple discovered a burning cross on their front lawn in February.
