Man convicted of armed Red Deer bank robbery
A Red Deer man has been convicted of an armed robbery at the Servus Credit Union in Taylor Plaza.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Dennis Thomas ruled from Edmonton that Dustin Aaron Clark, street-named “Lips,” is the same man who went into the branch late in the afternoon on Sept. 13, 2012, and fled with an undisclosed quantity of cash.
Represented by defence counsel Andrew Phypers and co-counsel Lyle Chartrand, Clark, 36, was tried in Red Deer during the week of Nov. 19.
Sentencing will swing on whether Thomas grants Crown prosecutor Jillian Brown’s request to have Clark assessed as a dangerous offender.
