A former Bar Harbor business owner is going to jail for two months after stealing more than $67,000 from banks and customers. 43-year-old Jennifer Lozano has since paid the money back. She pleaded no contest last fall to two counts of theft and was sentenced Thursday in Ellsworth. Lozano owned Parkside Restaurant and The Best of Bar Harbor store. Prosecutors say in the fall of 2010, she used credit card slips from sales at the restaurant in the summer and ran them again. The next year, authorities say Lozano wrote $52,000 worth of bogus checks with one bank account, then deposited them at a second bank for withdrawal.
