Man pleads guilty to stealing 20 bags of recyclable cans

By Donna M. Perry, Sun Journal

FARMINGTON, Maine — A North Jay man pleaded guilty Friday to stealing 20 bags of recyclable cans from a Wilton home last year.

Dillen K. Bronish, 20, entered pleas in Franklin County Superior Court to felony burglary and misdemeanor theft.

Assistant District Attorney James Andrews said if the case went to trial, the owner of the home on Route 2 would testify he kept the cans in a garage. A co-defendant would testify he entered the garage to take the cans.

Bronish was accused of picking up the co-defendant on the side of the road and loading the cans into a truck, Andrews said.

Bronish told the court he picked up the co-defendant and the bags of cans on the side of the road but never got out of the truck.

Justice Michaela Murphy agreed that if Bronish abides by certain conditions over the next two years, the charges would be dismissed.

Bronish was ordered to return to court March 13, 2015. He was also ordered to have no contact with the victim.
