Thefts end in jail time
A man who was caught for nine thefts in less than a year was recently sentenced to serve 17 months in jail.
Terrance Stanford MacDonald appeared before Chief Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown for sentencing on nine theft charges and five counts of failing to attend court.
MacDonald committed the thefts between February and September 2014 at several locations.
Before he could face the charges MacDonald left the province and was arrested last month.
He has been in custody since.
Along with the jail time, Douglas ordered MacDonald to pay $1,400 in victim surcharges.
He also banned MacDonald from Roots, KC Clothing, both of Charlottetown’s Superstores, the city’s Walmart, a Circle K store and a Shoppers Drug Mart.
