SUMMERSIDE - A 22-year-old Borden-Carleton man was placed on 12 months probation after pleading guilty in Summerside provincial court, Thursday to a charge of break, enter and theft.

 

Police were called to the Old Abbey building on Carleton Street in Borden-Carleton shortly after 7:30 a.m. and found Allen leaving the building carrying a sign.

Police reported that Terry Allen was under the influence at the time of the theft.

He told police that he had entered the building, found the sign and was taking it home to hang in his garage.

Judge Jeff Lantz suspended the passing of sentence and, in handing down the 12-month probation order, said Allen’s theft “was a stupid decision impacted by his level of intoxication.”

The judge added that being intoxicated at the time of day, 7:38 a.m., is a sign of an addictions issue.

In addition to the probationary period, Allen was ordered to pay a $100 victim fine surcharge.
