CORNWALL/NORTH DUNDAS – An Ottawa man who robbed a North Dundas bank this spring has been sentenced to two years in jail.

Jason Boldrick, 36, was sentenced in a city courtroom Monday (July 17).

On the most serious charge of robbery, Boldrick was given the two year jail sentence, which included credit for his 108 days of pre-trial custody on a one-and-a-half for one basis (162 days).

On another charge of unauthorized possession of a weapon (pepper spray), Boldrick was given a six month concurrent sentence (to run at the same time).

As part of his sentence he also has a lifetime weapons ban, has to pay $400 in fines and has to submit a DNA sample to the court.

A charge of disguise with intent was withdrawn by the Crown.

The Bank of Nova Scotia in South Mountain was robbed March 31 when a man went to a teller and demanded money.

Boldrick was arrested while trying to make a getaway in his pickup truck and the money was recovered.
