Man jailed for theft of Legion poppy donation box

The theft took place from the Safeway in Terrace this past November

A young man who’s spent time in jail on several charges while awaiting trial will spend another 14 days in jail.

Darian Joseph Spencer, 20, was handed a 30 day sentence for one charge of stealing a poppy donation box at Safeway this past November.

He was also sentenced to 60 days in jail for breaking a window at Blue Fin Sushi during a break and enter.

Both sentences were concurrent, meaning the 60 day sentence would be the time he would spend in jail. However, after credit for time served was given at 46 days, he was left with two weeks to serve in jail.

After his incarceration is done, he will spend one year on probation with conditions.

Spencer was also ordered to pay a $400 victim fine surcharge, the total that came from separate surcharges on those two charges and two other charges for breaching court ordered conditions.

On a daily press release from Terrace RCMP Nov. 12, police reported the theft of a poppy donation box on November 9th from Safeway.

Charges were forwarded to Crown Counsel on a youth and a 20-year-old man, said police at that time.

Two breach of probation charges were stayed by the court.
