Career criminal stays behind bars

Surrey's Bradley Antrobus sentenced to jail time for Delta pub arson and long list of other convictions.

Bradley Thomas Antrobus has been sentenced for setting the fire that destroyed Delta's Tidewaters Pub

A prolific Surrey criminal will spend the next couple of years in jail for setting fire to a Delta pub last year.

Bradley Thomas Antrobus was sentenced in Surrey Provincial Court Thursday (Dec. 15) to two years and four months in prison for the arson that destroyed the Tidewaters Pub & Grill in May 2010.

Antrobus, who was already in custody on other charges, pleaded guilty to the arson charge last month. The judge also imposed a lifetime firearms prohibition.

However, the 28-year-old also faced sentencing for a string of other, unrelated charges as well. He pleaded guilty in November to forcible confinement in connection to an April 2010 incident in Surrey and was handed to two-year jail sentence on Thursday. Related charges of robbery and uttering threats were stayed.

As well, Antrobus faced 25 counts of theft-related charges from June 2010, including mail theft, as well as four firearms charges. While 15 of those charges were stayed, he was sentenced to a year in jail for the rest.

Antrobus’s criminal record is lengthy, dating back to 2004 when he was found guilty of possessing break-in instruments in Delta. Since then, he’s faced multiple charges of drug possession, theft, possession of stolen property, break and enter, breaching probation and carrying a weapon.

In 2006, he made two most-wanted lists: as one of the top five sought by Surrey RCMP, and as one of the 10-most-wanted by the Integrated Municipal Auto Crime Team (IMPACT).
