Authorities say Matthew Atwood, 36, stole jewelry and cash from a Georgetown home where he had worked as a painting contractor in January 2012.

WEST BATH, Maine (AP) _ A painting contractor from Bath has been sentenced to a year in jail for stealing cash, jewelry and other items from homes where he had worked.

The Times Record reports that Matthew Atwood was also ordered by a judge in Sagadahoc District Court to three years pf probation and to pay more than $17,000 in restitution.

Authorities say the 36-year-old Atwood stole jewelry and cash worth $11,000 from a Georgetown home where he had worked as a painting contractor in January 2012.

Police arrested Atwood a second time and charged him with theft after investigators identified property stolen from a second Georgetown complainant had been pawned in the Lewiston-Auburn area.
