ELLSWORTH — A Maine fisherman sent to jail for six months on a state conviction of stealing lobsters is going to jail for an additional two months.

A federal judge ordered 30-year-old Shaun Lemoine of Swan’s Island to serve the extra time for violating the conditions of his release on an earlier federal case.

In February, Lemoine told a state judge he stole more than $2,000 worth of lobsters in 2008 because he was having financial problems.

The Bangor Daily News says Lemoine has an extensive criminal history, much of it in the island community where he grew up. He has been charged with stealing a wood stove from a neighbor, a television antenna from another and vandalizing property owned by other island residents.
