A Sav­age Har­bour man who stole a purse and used one of the credit cards that was in it was given a sus­pended sen­tence Mon­day in pro­vin­cial court.

Wayne Joseph Mosher, 26, ap­peared be­fore Chief Judge Nancy Orr in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to the theft.

The court heard that in June the vic­tim called the po­lice to re­port Mosher left her house with her purse, which had two credit cards in it.

When she called to can­cel the cards, the vic­tim learned one had al­ready been used for $202.25.

An RCMP of­fi­cer later pulled over a ve­hi­cle Mosher was in, but the money was never re­cov­ered.

Mosher told the court he uses drugs recre­ation­ally and was un­der the in­flu­ence when he took the purse.

With the sus­pended sen­tence, Mosher will be on pro­ba­tion for 18 months.

In ad­di­tion, he must pay $202.25 in resti­tu­tion and Orr or­dered him to per­form 30 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice or pay $10 per hour not per­formed.

Mosher must also pay a $100 vic­tim sur­charge.
