Two Waterville men were sentenced Thursday at the Capital Judicial Center in separate hearings on burglary and theft charges.

Under the sentence imposed Thursday, Caron will spend 18 months in prison with the remainder of the six-year sentence suspended. He also was placed on three years of probation. Part of the sentence includes an 18-month term for assault and violating conditions of release that occurred July 25, 2014, in Waterville. The sentences are to run concurrently.

Caron also was ordered to pay $1,646 restitution.
