Four arrested following attack, vandalism

Jail sentence for man involved in crime spree in Port Hardy last weekend.

PORT HARDY—A Port Hardy man has been sentenced to eight months in jail for assault with a weapon, 60 days for breach of probation, and three months for mischief under $5,000 following a crime spree that began the night of Feb. 23 and left one man in hospital with head injuries.

James Snowdon of Port Hardy, 21, was one of four men arrested by Port Hardy RCMP in the incident, which began with stolen liquor and progressed to multiple acts of vandalism, culminating in the assault that left the victim in hospital.

He entered guilty pleas on the charges in a Campbell River Courtroom Tuesday.

Two more suspects, Kevin Flanagan and Stephen D. Smith, were released on bail following a hearing Monday in Campbell River, but will be back in court Mar. 26 to enter pleas.

A fourth suspect was released on recognizance in a hearing in Port Hardy last week.
