Muhidiin Ahmed Farah pleads guilty in Birks robbery
Sentenced to four years
A man charged in a brazen daylight jewellry store heist in Saskatoon is going to prison.
He was sentenced to four years in prison, and given a weapons prohibition.
The robbery happened over the noon hour in early February. Farah was one of four disguised men who burst into the downtown Birks store with crowbars.
Rolex watches and jewellry
The men smashed display cases and made off with high-end watches and jewellry. The entire robbery was caught on surveillance tape.
Farah was later identified as one of the suspects and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.
In March, detectives in Montreal spotted him on a downtown street corner and arrested him.
