Prosecutor Sunday Patola spoke soon after the verdict.

Stevenson is already serving a ten year jail term.

Kalmikoff was found not guilty of a sixth charge – knowingly being in possession of the shotgun Stevenson used in the two armed robberies.

During the trial the court heard how Kalmikoff waited in a vehicle as the get-away driver while Stevenson – who was addicted to morphine – committed the robberies. He used a bicycle to get from the crime scene to the vehicle.

Kalmikoff will be back in court in January to fix a date for sentencing
