The Castlegar resident who pled guilty to the June 7 robbery of the local Husky station has received his sentence.
Aaron Michael Ryan Lich, 29, appeared in provincial court August 17, where he was sentenced to 20.5 months of jail time, 3 years probation and a 10 year firearms prohibition.
According to RCMP, Lich entered the store and browsed inside for several minutes before threatening to produce a weapon, demanding money and then fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was apprehended a short time later.
Husky manager Happy Singh reported at the time that the only employee at the store was frightened after the robber stated he had a knife in his pocket.
