A P.E.I. man who was involved in a break and enter into a shed that saw the thieves take a horse saddle, an old sewing machine and several other items was sentenced recently to 105 days in jail.
John Travis Feehan, 29, appeared before Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to break and enter and commit theft and a separate offence of failing to attend court.
Crown attorney Valerie Moore told the court that on April 24, 2018, the police responded to a call about a break and enter into a shed.
When the police arrived, they found the victim and a friend were using two vehicles to block the one Feehan was in so he and a co-accused couldn’t get away.
Moore said the thieves stole a horse saddle, an old sewing machine, a variety of tools and old Canadian currency of varying denominations.
The victim recovered all of the items at the scene.
Defence lawyer Conor Mullin told the court Feehan was dealing with addiction issues but has since gone on the methadone program and is working as an apprentice plumber.
Along with the jail time, Feehan will be on probation for 18 months.
