‘Super 8’ thief sentenced Wednesday

One of two career criminals involved in a police standoff at the Super 8 Motel on Glover Road in March 2012 was scheduled to learn his fate in Supreme Court in New Westminster on Wednesday.

Surrey resident Dave Yaroslawsky was expected to be sentenced after pleading guilty to more than half of the charges against him.

He was facing around 60 charges for the high profile arrest but Crown agreed to stay many of the charges.

His co-accused, Ivan Logan Johnson, 33, of New Westminster, is facing more than 50 charges in relation to the Super 8 Motel arrest.

He was arrested along with Yaroslawsky, 29, by the Emergency Response Team and police dogs who surrounded the motel room after the two men refused to come out.

Witnesses had called 911 after seeing the two men, allegedly with guns, unloading items into a motel room.

Those two men are believed to be involved in up to 18 home robberies in the Fraser Valley.

Hundreds of stolen items were seized from the motel room.
