The man who robbed the Revelstoke CIBC in May 2010, was sentenced to five years in jail in Kamloops court last month.

Anthony Lloyd Smith, 54, of Kamloops, plead guilty to the May 17, 2010, robbery of the Revelstoke branch of the CIBC.

The robbery occurred at around 10 a.m. on May 17, 2010, when a man wearing checkered pyjamas bottoms, entered the bank, said he had a gun, and left with an undisclosed amount of money, the Times Review reported at the time.

He was able to escape from Revelstoke but he and Roland McAnerin were arrested four days later after being stopped by police following the robbery of the CIBC in Oliver, B.C.

Further investigation by the Revelstoke RCMP revealed that Smith was the man who robbed the Revelstoke CIBC, said Staff Sgt. Jacquie Olsen of the Revelstoke RCMP.

The duo were also allegedly connected to the robberies in Nanton and Innisfail in Alberta, and Kamloops, all in 2010.

Smith plead guilt to robbing the Revelstoke CIBC in Kamloops court on Oct. 7, 2011. He was sentenced to five years in jail and a lifetime firearm prohibition.

McAnerin is scheduled to be tried in April 2012 on two counts of robbery and one count of possession of stolen property.
