MACHIASPORT – 26-year-old Christopher Wood was arrested earlier today.
When the alleged thefts occurred wood was out on bail on other unrelated charges, according to Washington County Sheriff Deputy Timothy Carter.
The motors were taken from two skiffs at the public landing in Machiasport on Wednesday. As Carter was taking the theft reports from the owners, another man drove up and asked if a motor had been stolen.
The man then turned over a motor he said he purchased the day before from wood. The man says he did not know the motor was stolen when he purchased it.
