PARIS — A Fryeburg man has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing vintage guitars and jewelry from a Porter home.

Zachary Jackson was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to burglary, two counts of theft and receiving stolen property. He was also ordered to pay more than $7,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say the homeowner caught a man and a woman leaving his home in April with jewelry. They were told to drop the items, but instead ran to a car and drove off. They were later identified as the 24-year-old Jackson and 24-year-old Tiffany Loring.

The Sun Journal reports that two of the five guitars missing from the home turned up at a Portland pawn shop. Not all of the stolen items were recovered.

Loring’s case is pending.
