A car thief was sen­tenced to 90 days in jail af­ter plead­ing guilty in pro­vin­cial court.

Robert Stu­art ap­peared in pro­vin­cial court in Drumheller on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 26 via closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion. He was charged with theft of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle, pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty and breach of con­di­tions. He pleaded guilty to the first charge.

On June 7 of this year, a man in Aca­dia Val­ley no­ticed a ve- hi­cle miss­ing from his front yard. He then saw the ve­hi­cle driv­ing along a road­way close to his home. Stu­art was found in pos­ses­sion of the ve­hi­cle and was taken into cus­tody by po­lice.

The court heard that Stu­art had a re­lated record of prop­erty crimes. The Crown and de­fense agreed to a joint sub­mis­sion of 90 days. His re­main­ing charges re­lated to this in­ci­dent were with­drawn. He was given credit for time served, how­ever, he re­mains in cus­tody for other mat­ters.
