Having pleaded guilty to holding up a drug store in Attelboro, Mass., back in July, former Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd has been sentenced to three years of probation and one year of home confinement, the Boston Globe reports. The court has also mandated that he continue receiving drug treatment.

The Sun Chronicle adds that Todd — who threatened to blow up a Walgreens on July 10 before taking a cab back to the nearby Comcast Center, where his band opened for Soundgarden — has been diagnosed with cancer.

Todd’s lawyer, Jason Benzaker, declined to comment on the cancer, but he spoke about the troubled musician’s battle with addiction.

“He has been in very intensive drug treatment without being required to do so in order to overcome his addiction and not relapse,” Benazker said.
