A Yorkton man has avoided jail time, after pleading guilty to Shoplifting and Resisting Arrest.
On Sunday, 22-year-old Dustin Irwin was spotted stealing some items from the Super C Esso, but got away before an employee could stop him.
Then last (Mon) night, Irwin was seen walking along Broadway Street West by police.
When they tried to arrest him, he ran across four lanes of traffic, was eventually pepper-sprayed, and taken into custody.
In Yorkton Provincial Court this (Tue) afternoon, Irwin received a 7-month conditional sentence.
