A man found guilty in a case involving a fire at a North Okanagan gas station, will return to court in two weeks to fix a sentencing date.

A jury found 46 year old Donald Jeffrey Thomas guilty of one count of theft over $5,000 after a seven-day BC Supreme Court trial in Vernon.

The charge stemmed from a fire at the Super Save gas station in Enderby in November 2012 which caused extensive damage.

Thomas was the store's manager at the time.

The Crown entered stays on charges of arson and fraud against Thomas who will find out his sentencing date December 17.

After the fire, which started in a back room at the store on Nov. 19, 2012, the building was demolished.

The site now has a new Esso station along with a Tim Hortons.
