A man has been sentenced to a further 66 days in jail for wielding a knife while robbing a Prince George store of some ice cream.

Shane Daniel Coulas, 24, was issued the term Thursday during a hearing in Williams Lake provincial court on a count of assault with a weapon. He was also sentenced to time served  one year probation for theft $5,000 or under and to one year probation on the counts.

Coulas has remained in custody since March 17 when he was arrested after police were called to the 1800 block of 20th Avenue. 

RCMP said at the time that a man brandished a knife at staff and then fled on foot with a small amount of ice cream. Coulas was located walking down a nearby alley and was arrested without incident.
