Though David Forslund was a snitch (and he might still be) for the Vancouver and Victoria British police, he is a convicted criminal.
In 1971 he was sent to jail at the William Head Penitentiary. In 1973 he was again sent to jail in a work camp near Campbell River.
In one of his famous snitch operations David Forslund literally framed someone. David worked with the BC police to set SM up (I will only use his initials). David convinced SM to commit an armed robbery in Newfoundland. SM was unaware that David set him up for this robbery. SM went to jail for one of the biggest bank robberies in Newfoundland. David conspired and planned to commit the robbery in order to avoid getting thrown in jail on other charges.
