AUGUSTA (AP) — A man is going to spend three days in jail and pay a $10,000 fine for redeeming New Hampshire bottles and cans in Maine to collect the 5 cent deposit.

The Maine attorney general’s office says 67- year- old Dennis Reed pleaded guilty to a variety of charges in York County Superior Court. He was sentenced Monday in Alfred.

Reed owns a Derry, N. H., sports complex called Sports- Zone.

Officials say that between April 2008 and February 2010 Reed obtained more than $ 4,400 by redeeming New Hampshire containers, for which no deposit was paid, in Maine
