AUGUSTA — A city man with a penchant for stealing public property will serve two more years in prison for taking items belonging to the Hallowell Water District.

Collin R. Giroux, 37, of Augusta, was sentenced Monday in Kennebec County Superior Court for burglarizing the water district property between September and November 2011, and stealing a drill press and laptop. He had previously pleaded guilty to those charges as well as to burglarizing a private home in Hallowell, taking tools, a radio, a sewing machine and electronics during that same time period, and a separate theft.

Giroux had also pleaded guilty to separate charges of criminal mischief and violating condition of release by breaking a window at the Liberal Cup in Hallowell on Oct. 15, 2012.

He was sentenced to five years in jail, with all but six months suspended, two years’ probation and $1,750 restitution. The sentence is concurrent with a 24 month probation revocation.

Giroux was on probation for previous thefts when the newer offenses occurred. He was convicted of receiving stolen property, a generator that had disappeared from the Central Maine Pre-Release Center in Hallowell.
