SASKATOON – A man has been sentenced for his role in the robbery of the Birks jewellery store in downtown Saskatoon in February.

Muhidiin Ahmed-Farah was the only suspect identified after four men brandishing crowbars smashed displays cases and made off with Rolex watches and other items on Feb. 1.

He was identified through surveillance video and captured in Montreal earlier this month after a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

Ahmed-Farah was sentenced to four years in prison for armed robbery and breach of conditions.

He was also handed a firearms probation, $400 in surcharge fines and a DNA order.

The three other suspects remain at large.
