How to stop an armed robbery at your home

The man who led a series of armed robberies at his Ottawa home and later confessed to police that he acted alone is now out of prison.

Daniel Kalkut pleaded guilty in the capital to aggravated assault, robbery and breach of recognizance.

He’s now in custody and will be serving two-thirds of his sentence in a federal correctional facility in Winnipeg.

He had been held in custody since his arrest in October 2014, and is scheduled to be released in May 2019.

Kalkute, who is white, has been on the run since his November 2014 arrest in the city’s northwest.

Karkut is expected to appear in court again on June 2.

His sentencing is scheduled for May 19.

He was also charged with breaking and entering, aggravated assault and breach and agreement of silence.

A statement released Thursday by the Crown says Kalkuthut “has been convicted of these offences and is entitled to a sentence of life imprisonment with no possibility of parole.”

Kalkuts defence lawyer said his client will have no comment on the case.
