A 20-year-old Kings County man has been sentenced to time in custody for 11 charges.

Dylan Douglas Michael Parsons, a.k.a. Lyons, whose last known address was The Refuge in Kentville, was facing charges that included possession of stolen property, in this case a car, valued at less than $5,000; three counts of stealing property valued at less than $5,000, including four tires and related services from Canadian Tire; six counts of failing to comply with probation, two counts of failing to comply with his undertaking and refusing to comply with a demand from a peace officer to provide a sample of his urine for analysis.

Parsons pleaded guilty to all charges on March 31 and consented to being remanded in custody until April 28 for sentencing. A pre-sentence report was ordered.
