LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has pleaded guilty to selling a John Deere front loader to two different people and collecting a total of $18,000.

The attorney general’s office says 44-year-old Eric Corliss of Barnstead pleaded guilty Friday in Belknap County Superior Court to a theft charge. His sentence of at least a year was suspended on the condition he pay back the first buyer and have no contact with him.

Prosecutors said he sold the front loader to one person last year for $10,000 and agreed to keep it on his property until the buyer arranged to have a truck pick it up. He then sold the same item to a second buyer for $8,000.
