Terrace man receives conditional discharge

Arrested after police found he was in possession of stolen items

A local man will not have a record if he follows his probation conditions.

Allan Ross Barabash was handed a conditional discharge and probation for one year in provincial court here April 23.

He had earlier pleaded guilty to two charges of possession of stolen property under $5,000.

On Nov. 15, 2013, Terrace RCMP were called when a suspicious man was noticed trying doors of vehicles parked at the Husky on Lakelse Ave., said police at that time.

Police located the 64-year-old man on Lakelse, arrested him for theft and seized numerous stolen items found on him.

These items were returned to four separate businesses in the area of Lakelse and the man was released on conditions, said police.

Barabash will also have to pay a victim fine surcharge of $100.

A charge of breaching an undertaking was stayed by the court.
