DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — A Ripley man and a Milo man who each were charged with theft and burglary in unrelated cases pleaded guilty Monday in Dover-Foxcroft District Court.

Both Timothy J. Rolfe, 35, of Ripley and Tyler R. Cutler, 19, of Milo waived grand jury indictments to have their cases heard before acting Superior Court Judge Kevin Stitham.

Sentencing for Rolfe, who was charged with four burglaries and five thefts by unauthorized taking, was continued. Police said Rolfe broke into four homes between May 15 and July 11 and stole an antique motorcycle, identification bracelets, electric car battery chargers, copper wire, firearms and furniture.

Cutler, who was charged with one count each of burglary and theft by unauthorized taking, broke into Three Rivers Hardware Store in Milo on Aug. 22 and took rolls of wire and three pairs of logging boots, according to police.

Cutler was sentenced on the burglary charge to 15 months in jail with all but 10 days suspended. He also was placed on probation for two years and ordered to pay restitution of up to $863.96. On the theft charge, Cutler received 10 days in jail concurrent with the burglary charge.
