Stolen-property offender sentenced to two years

Ivan Logan Johnson was found with items stolen from homes in Abbotsford, Surrey, Langley, Hope and Chilliwack.

A New Westminster man who pleaded guilty to a series of stolen-property offences has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Ivan Logan Johnson’s prison term will be followed by two years of probation. He was given credit for the one year he has already served in jail.

Johnson, 33, was arrested with co-accused Dave Yaroslawsky, 31, of Surrey on March 2, 2012 after a standoff at the Super 8 Motel on Glover Road in Langley.

The men were in possession of so many stolen items that police had to create a slideshow on their website to allow the public to look though the items and determine what belonged to them.

Police recovered everything from stolen jewelry, including lockets and rings, to coins, stolen ID and electronics.

The police then held a day where victims of break-ins could come to the detachment and view the property.

The items had been stolen mainly from homes in Abbotsford, Surrey, Langley, Hope and Chilliwack.

Yaroslawsky has pleaded guilty to 32 charges – mainly for stolen property – and is scheduled for sentencing in November.

During his sentencing hearing on July 31, the court heard that he had accumulated so many stolen items that he had rented a storage locker in Aldergrove to stash it.

Numerous items were also found in his vehicle at the Super 8 Motel, as well as in his motel room.

He claimed that he was a “fence” for the stolen property and was not involved in the break-ins.
