An Abbotsford man has received a jail sentence of three years and four months for robbing businesses in Abbotsford and Mission in 2012.

Shaymon Webb, 33, was sentenced Friday in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster. He previously pleaded guilty to four of the nine offences with which he was initially charged.

Webb’s jail term will be followed by three years of probation and includes a 10-year weapons ban.

Webb admitted to robbing Chances Gaming Centre in Mission on March 7, 2012 and Michael Hill Jeweller in Abbotsford’s Sevenoaks Shopping Centre on June 12 of that year.

He also pleaded guilty to using a fake gun and disguising his face in relation to the Abbotsford robbery.

Webb had also faced charges related to a robbery at Chances in Mission in July 2009, but those charges were stayed.

In all, he had been charged with three counts of robbery, three counts of using a fake gun, and three counts of using a mask/disguise during an offence.

In the 2012 robbery at Chances, Webb was accused of wielding a shotgun and demanding cash. He then fled in a 1987 Pontiac 6000 that had allegedly been stolen from Abbotsford.

During the incident in Sevenoaks Shopping Centre, he carried a fake gun, walked into the jewelry store, used a rock to smash a display case and stole several items.

He pulled his shirt up to conceal his face just before entering the store.

After the robbery, Webb ran through the mall and drove away in an older model black sedan.

Police found some discarded clothing and a replica handgun in the area.

On Dec. 7, 2012, police issued a public notice, asking for help in trying to locate Webb, who was a suspect in the prior robberies and was wanted for another incident – a break-in at a restaurant in the 33660 block of South Fraser Way on Nov. 24, 2012.

In that incident, Webb smashed the locked glass front door of the restaurant, jumped the counter and took some food. Security video led police to seek Webb as a suspect.

He was arrested Dec. 8, 2012, charged with breaking into the restaurant and released on bail. He pleaded guilty to that crime in February 2013 and was sentenced to 17 days in jail.

Webb is also still facing a theft charge from January 2012 and is next scheduled to appear on that matter on Oct. 1 in Abbotsford provincial court.
