A Charlottetown man who was arrested after police found him on a Crown witness’s property with three cans of gasoline was sentenced Tuesday to 90 days in jail.

Connor Lloyd Jenkins, 22, appeared in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to trespassing at night.

The RCMP arrested Jenkins on July 12, 2013 after he stole gasoline from three different gas stations in the Charlottetown area.

When the RCMP found him, Jenkins had three jerry cans of gasoline and was on property belonging to a witness who was expected to testify in trials for Jason Yeo and Derry Bird in 2013.

Yeo and Bird are serving jail time for drug-related offences and a 2012 armed robbery in Emyvale.

Last year Jenkins pleaded guilty to stealing the gas and was sentenced to four months in custody.

Along with the jail time handed down Tuesday, Jenkins will be on probation for two years.
