FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Larry Eugene Calver has been sentenced for robbing a Fort St. John bank on April Fool’s Day.

Calver, who was sentenced on December 28, 2016, entered the Bank of Montreal in Fort St. John and demanded money from employees at around 12:30 p.m. on April 1. He then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said at the time no weapon appeared to be produced but that the man had indicated to the bank employee that he was carrying a weapon.
