Kentville men to serve time for Christmas Eve bank machine theft

KENTVILLE - A recent court case should serve as a reminder to make sure you’ve finished and closed out your transaction and taken your bank card with you after using an automated teller machine.

Two Kentville men have been sentenced to jail time for stealing a total of $420 from a bank machine in town on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 2014.

“It was a crime of opportunity,” public defender Ken Greer said at the sentencing hearing for Wayne Gordon Bezanson, 44, on May 20.

Bezanson pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing property valued at less than $5,000 and to failing to comply with probation. Judge Claudine MacDonald sentenced him to a total of 14 days in custody.

Jason Edward Young, 38, was charged jointly with Bezanson for the theft and also pleaded guilty May 20. The following day, he was sentenced to nine days in custody.

The court heard that the owner of the bank card forgot it in the machine and didn’t close out the screen after making a transaction. This allowed Bezanson and Young to access his account and withdraw funds.

Greer said at Bezanson’s sentencing that his client stole about $100 and the other party received the rest of the amount.

MacDonald said it was concerning that Bezanson was serving probation for another property related offence at the time.5
