New new time for crime

A man who received a nine-month jail sentence won’t be spending any extra time behind bars.

William Reedel pleaded guilty to possession of stolen property on Monday in Campbell River provincial court.

However, he’s already serving an 18-month jail sentence for crimes committed on Quadra Island and the new nine months will run concurrently.

Reedel was in possession of a digital camera stolen from a Black Creek residence last October. About a week later, Reedel pawned the camera in Campbell River, but the owner later identified it when he went into the same shop to buy a new camera.
