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.”

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.
