Reports show Hannon was sentenced to one-year in prison in April 2017 after he and an accomplice stole a truck in Errington and led police on a high-speed chase before crashing in Nanoose Bay.

Hannon will be held at the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre in Victoria until his next court appearance by video on Nov. 21.
