Remaining charges, including 10 counts of possession of a weapon for the purpose of trafficking, were then withdrawn and he received his jail sentence.

Hardy was one of two men arrested on November 29th of last year after an early evening vehicular stop in an alley. That led to a subsequent Grande Prairie residential search and the seizure of 11  assault rifles, 10 of which belonged to Corlane Sporting Goods in Dawson Creek, which police have said was entered by cutting a hole in the roof.

Hardy, who has served 11 days in custody, will now complete his sentence by serving 19 more. However, he’ll be free for Christmas and he’ll be allowed to spread them out over three months starting in January.
