Not guilty verdict in robbery case
SYDNEY — One of two men charged in connection with a robbery last year at a New Waterford taxi stand has been found not guilty.
David Clifford MacLean-Devoe, 23, of New Waterford, was charged with armed robbery (a knife), wearing a mask in committing an offence (a bandana), carrying a weapon dangerous to public peace and assault.
The offences were alleged to have occurred last Oct. 25.
After a provincial court trial on the charges, Judge Brian Williston ruled there were too many frailties when it came to identification of the accused leaving him with reasonable doubt.
A co-accused in the case is scheduled to stand trial later this year.
