Not guilty ver­dict in rob­bery case

Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

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.
