PARIS, Maine — A Fryeburg man was sentenced to four months in jail after pleading no contest to a spree of vehicle thefts in the Fryeburg area in December 2012.
Cody Parmenter, 20, was found guilty of three felony theft charges and was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison, with all but 120 days suspended. He received two years’ probation and was ordered to pay $2,949 in restitution, shared with co-defendant Derek Foster of Mechanic Falls.
Parmenter and Foster were indicted in April on arson, theft and criminal mischief charges for a one-night crime spree involving multiple stolen vehicles during a snowstorm.
According to prosecutors, the two men stole three pickup trucks in Brownfield, Lovell and Fryeburg and burned one of them on the roadside in Fryeburg before Parmenter returned to his home. Foster went on to steal two other vehicles before being apprehended by police near Fryeburg.
In September, Foster pleaded guilty to theft, arson, criminal mischief and receiving stolen property. He was given a five-year suspended sentence, two years’ probation and ordered to pay $5,295 in restitution. He was also sentenced to 23 months on a probation revocation.
