SYD­NEY — A 58-year-old Syd­ney Mines woman has been sen­tenced to com­plete a 30-month fed­eral prison sen­tence on charges in­clud­ing armed rob­bery. Linda Dar­lene MacKin­non of King Street pleaded guilty to armed rob­bery, forcible en­try and as­sault. Other of­fences were with­drawn. She was charged in con­nec­tion with an in­ci­dent May 18 when a res­i­dent of an apart­ment build­ing on King Street re­ported a woman had come to the door, bran­dished a knife and de­manded money. The sus­pect then fled on foot. A short time later, po­lice re­ceived another call of an armed rob­bery at a busi­ness on Main Street and ar­rested a fe­male sus­pect found run­ning up King Street with a knife.

In ad­di­tion to the jail sen­tence, MacKin­non is to pay a to­tal of $105 in resti­tu­tion, is banned from pos­sess­ing firearms for 10 years and was or­dered to sub­mit a DNA sam­ple to the na­tional registry.
