Man Sentenced for Safe Theft 

Steven Robbins was sentenced Thursday in Hancock County Superior Court for stealing a safe containing thousands of dollars in cash from his grandmother.

Robbins was convicted last summer of going to his grandmother’s home in Lamoine, where he and another suspect put a pillowcase over his grandmother’s head while she slept, handcuffed her, bound her legs with a telephone cord and demanded the combination to her safe.

In the following days, he allegedly spent thousands of dollars in cash, buying puppies, a truck and a $1,400 engagement ring.

Robbins’ wife was acquitted in the case.
