One of two people arrested in relation to a robbery at a convenience store in Antigonish Co. has received his sentence.
RCMP say one man went into the store in Lower South River in May.
They say two more people followed, and a man jumped over the counter and demanded cash from the only employee in the store.
Police say the three took off, no weapon was ever seen, and no one was hurt.
Officers arrested Anthony Dorsey, 37, and April Murnaghan, 28, in the Toronto area in August; the pair, who are both from Lower South River, made their first appearances in the case on robbery charges three days later.
They had show cause hearings in Antigonish Provincial Court shortly after their arrests; Dorsey, who was denied bail, was expected for election-and-plea Thursday, after the hearing was adjourned at the end of August, twice in September, in October and twice in November; instead, he received his sentence.
Dorsey received a two-and-a-half year sentence in-custody, he received credit for seven-and-a-half months served, followed by two years of probation and a DNA order; he also received a concurrent sentence of 30 days in-custody and two years of probation.
Murnaghan, who was released from custody, is scheduled for election-and-plea Wednesday; her hearing was also adjourned in September and twice in November.
The third suspect in the case was never found.
