Trafficking in stolen goods has netted a 44-year-old man a jail term, even though he won’t spend any more time in custody for the offence.

Robert Michael McKay was sentenced to 90 days in jail for selling two camera lenses to a city pawn shop July 9, 2018. The lenses had been stolen two days earlier from Rocky Mountain Endodontics on Mayor Magrath Drive South.

McKay pleaded guilty to one count of trafficking in stolen property and two counts of failing to appear in court, and even though he was sentenced to 90 days in jail, he was given credit for the same amount of time he already spent in custody, concluding his sentence.

McKay still faces unrelated charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and breaching a condition of a recognizance. He returns to court on those charges April 8.
