A 23-year-old man has been sentenced to a seven-month jail term for committing two robberies in Abbotsford on April 29, 2015.

Shawn Michael Wollmann’s jail term will be followed by two years of probation. He was also handed a 10-year weapons ban during sentencing March 23 in Abbotsford provincial court after he previously pleaded guilty to the charges.

The Abbotsford Police Department reported in late April 2015 that they were investigating robberies at four fast food restaurants in close proximity to one another – in the 32400 to 32500 block of South Fraser Way.

The incidents had occurred between April 18 and 29 of that year.

At the time, police said a knife had been produced by the suspect in one of the robberies. The other three times a weapon was implied but not shown.

An image obtained from surveillance video was released to the public in hopes of identifying a suspect.

Wollmann was identified not long afterwards and was charged with two of the robberies.

A third charge for a robbery occurring on April 12, 2015 was later added, but that was stayed during sentencing.

Wollmann has no prior charges or convictions in B.C., according to the provincial court database.
