SUMMERSIDE — A Summerside man who was involved in a break-in at a West Prince Convenience store in September will be back in court in February to be sentenced for the crime.

Prince County Courthouse.

Ryan Randall James Clements, 24, pleaded guilty recently in Summerside provincial court to the break-in, which occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 7.

According to the police investigation, Clements was the look-out while another male, a youth, broke the drive-thru window of the business, crawled through to get inside the store and stole 10 to 12 cartoons of cigarettes.

For his role, Clements was given two packs of cigarettes. Both men were drinking at the time and the crime was caught on video surveillance.

The total loss to the business was $1,322.

Clements has a previous record and has served time behind bars.

His lawyer, Trish Cheverie, asked that a presentence report be prepared, noting that Clements, who has struggled with drug abuse, is now “straight and clean” and back living with his parents.

Judge Jeff Lantz agreed to adjourn sentencing to allow for the preparation of the presentence report. Clements will be back in Summerside court on Feb. 4 for sentencing.
