BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A judge has ruled that a Glenburn man will spend two years on probation for stealing a package belonging to the Veterans Administration while he was employed as a delivery man.

The judge sentenced 38-year-old Chad Bitgood in federal court on Wednesday.

Court records say Bitgood stole the package because he believed it contained narcotic medications. Investigators confronted him and he admitted stealing the package with the intent of consuming any narcotics inside.

Bitgood was convicted of theft of government property and attempted possession of a controlled substance.

He pleaded guilty on Jan. 26 and must also pay a $1,000 fine.
