PARIS, Maine — A Norway man police say broke into more than a dozen homes and businesses in early 2010 has been sentenced to two years in prison.
Authorities say 21-year-old Shawn McAuliffe was sentenced in Oxford County Superior Court this week to 10 years behind bars with all but two suspended and six years of probation. He pleaded guilty to 31 of more than 70 charges, including burglary, criminal mischief and theft by unauthorized taking.
The Sun Journal reported that the charges were from break-ins across Oxford County, including homes and businesses in Norway, Otisfield, Waterford, Stoneham, Greenwood and Sweden.
Authorities say McAuliffe and two other men stole televisions, household appliances and other items.
One of the other men has already been sentenced, while the third is awaiting sentencing.
