The man accused of robbing the CIBC bank almost two years ago entered a guilty plea in Williams Lake Supreme Court Monday, Sept. 9.
Christopher Michael Swain, 41, of 100 Mile House pleaded guilty to robbery in relation to the incident that took place the afternoon of Nov. 28 at the CIBC on Oliver Street in Williams Lake.
A preliminary hearing was held for Swain last fall. A five-day trial had been scheduled to start Oct. 21, 2019.
In December 2017, two Williams Lake men, Bill Drebit and Blaine Grinder were acknowledged by the City of Williams Lake and the RCMP for their efforts to detain the suspect until police arrived on scene of the robbery.
