A man was sentenced to 75 days in jail in connection with the theft of oilfield equipment from well sites in the Clive area.

Thomas Warren Paterson, 27, of no fixed address was sentenced on Oct. 25 after pleading guilty to possession of stolen property. He was also given a $100 fine and will be on probation for one year following his release from prison.

Charges of possession of break-in instruments and another charge of possession of stolen property over $5,000 was withdrawn.

Paterson was arrested in Edmonton after allegedly trying to sell two stolen gas flow meters to an oilfield company there in April. About 10 meters were taken in all, said police.

The same charges were all withdrawn on Nov. 8 against a second man, Linden Lubbers, 24, of Clive.
