61 year old gets 3 years for heist

A 61 year-old man has been sentenced to three years in prison for robbing a bank in Dawson Creek.

On June 11th, Larry E. Calver approached a teller at the Dawson Creek CIBC, and said “this is a hold-up.”

He relieved the bank of 23 hundred dollars in cash. After after being identified from surveillance photos, he was arrested, with 500 dollars taken in the robbery still in his possession.

Prince George provincial court judge Darrell O’Byrne said Calver has
a terrible record going back to 1967, as well as a strong cocaine addiction.

And despite the equivalent of 140 days already spent in custody, Judge O’Byrne still decided to give Calver a new three year sentence.

Calver has also been given a lifetime firearms prohibition, and been ordered to to provide authorities a DNA sample for a national data bank.
