Delta men plead guilty to robbery charges
A pair of 18-year-old Delta men have pleaded guilty to robbery charges after an incident in Tsawwassen last year.
Brian McCarthy pleaded guilty on Feb. 1 and was sentenced to 12 months, while Richard Jolly pleaded guilty on March 18. His sentencing hearing is pending.
On the night of April 5, 2010, Delta police responded to a report of two suspicious persons wearing masks and walking toward a local convenience store in the 1500 block of 56th Street. One of them was carrying a shotgun.
Both were arrested and charged with robbery; use of an imitation firearm in the commission of an offence; and disguised face with intent to commit an offence.
The arresting officer Const. Kevin Dueck recently received a provincial Award of Valour for his courage. The award is presented to police officers who place themselves at risk in order to take action for the benefit of others.
