Charge of break and enter with intent involving bank dismissed in November

KENTVILLE, NS - A Lake Paul man has been sentenced to jail time for several offences, including willfully damaging the property of a bank and break, enter and theft involving a cottage.

Travis Darrell Seyforth, 31, was found guilty on several charges on Oct. 11, including break, enter and theft involving a cottage; failing to comply with probation and failing to comply with his recognizance. He was acquitted on another count of failing to comply with his recognizance. The matters were adjourned to allow time for a pre-sentence report to be prepared and for sentencing. Seyforth committed the offences in Lake Paul on July 13.

Seyforth changed his pleas to guilty on Nov. 1 to charges of willfully damaging the property of Scotiabank in Greenwood to a value not exceeding $5,000, willfully damaging RCMP property to a value not exceeding $5,000, two counts of uttering a death threat and three counts of failing to comply with his recognizance. The matters were adjourned for sentencing. Seyforth committed the offences in Greenwood on April 7.

A charge of break and enter with intent involving the Greenwood Scotiabank was dismissed on Nov. 1 with the Crown offering no evidence.

On Dec. 10, Judge Christopher Manning sentenced Seyforth to a total of 13 months in custody on the 10 charges, to be followed by 24 months of probation. The court granted a five-year firearm prohibition on each of the two charges of uttering threats, to be served concurrently, and the court granted a secondary DNA order in relation to one count of uttering threats.
