33-year-old Benjamin Tibbetts was sentenced to three months for violating his probation on another theft conviction.
Tibbetts is also charged with theft, accused of stealing pellet stoves from Sunrise Home and Hearth, where he worked then selling them at discounted prices.
Deputy District Attorney Mike Roberts says Tibbetts admitted he may have violated probation by committing those crime, but Thursday Tibbetts recanted.
He did admit to having alcohol in violation of his probation. That bought him three months in jail.
He’s scheduled back in court for the pellet stove case next month.
