A Prince George man with a history of similar crimes has been sentenced to a further year in jail for a break and enter that led to the discovery of a stolen semi-truck.
Clinton Jay Baraniuk, 31, was issued the term in provincial court on Monday. He was arrested on August 11 when, shortly after midnight, RCMP were called to a break in at a 2300-block Ospika Boulevard business.
In a statement issued at the time, RCMP said the suspect fled on foot but was found hiding nearby. When he refused to comply with police commands, a police service dog was deployed and he was soon in custody.
The semi-truck, reported missing from Grande Prairie, Alberta, was found nearby, police said.
Baraniuk had remained in custody since the arrest for a total of 104 days, prior to sentencing.
He was also sentenced to 30 days for resisting arrest during an August 4 incident in Grande Prairie and he was ordered to spend the remainder of an 18-month conditional sentence order issued July 15 for a spree of break and enters in August 2019.
He was also ordered to pay $763.76 restitution.
