ALFRED — Separate juries found Thomas Woodard guilty and Megan Woodard not guilty today of theft by deception for stealing more than $10,000 by passing off out-of-state containers returned to his redemption center in Kittery, as if they were sold in Maine.

The jury for Thomas Woodard returned its guilty verdict around 11:30 a.m. this morning, and the jury for Megan Woodard returned its not guilty verdict at about 12:30 p.m.

The Woodards owned Green Bee Redemption in Kittery. During the trial, which began Tuesday, the prosecution argued that the Woodards participated in a scheme to refund out-of-state containers so they could collect a handling fee of 3 or 3.5 cents per container.
