A 35-year-old southeast Michigan man will spend up to six years in prison for stealing pots, pans and utensils from a soup kitchen where he worked.
The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports (http://bit.ly/16n1SrB ) Friday that Michael Lee Threet was sentenced Thursday in Lenawee County Circuit Court to two years and four months to six years in prison.
He pleaded guilty April 10 to larceny and being a habitual offender.
The kitchen equipment was taken Dec. 7 from The Daily Bread of Lenawee, a nonprofit soup kitchen about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.
Defense attorney John Glaser said his client was "having a hard time with some pain pills and just surviving."
Assistant prosecutor Scott Baker said the theft is "offense number 22" for Threet.
