A Sussex man will spend another two-and-a-half years in prison following multiple incidents in the area.

Thomas Quinn Doiron initially faced six charges in connection with a trio of incidents in July of 2022.

Doiron was accused of stealing fuel from an area gas station on July 11 and setting fire to a home on Route 111 in Jeffries Corner on July 13.

He was also charged in a July 18 break-in at a home on Elmview Avenue in Sussex which sent a man to the hospital with serious injuries.

Doiron was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of aggravated assault, break and enter, uttering threats, attempted arson, theft under $5,000, and driving while prohibited.

RCMP later charged Doiron in connection with a separate incident that took place in the Wards Creek area on July 11, 2022.

Police said he used a stolen excavator to damage a home and private property and then stole a firearm from the residence.

Doiron pleaded guilty to charges of mischief over $5,000 and breaking into a residence to steal a firearm. He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison and handed a lifetime firearms prohibition.
