Gaudet also plead guilty to charges from an unrelated assault. Gaudet’s fingerprints were found on the truck, along with a backpack that contained his resume. 

The truck was spotted at other break and enters in the region.

In prison since September of 2017, Gaudet received a sentence of time served for his role in the theft, followed by a six month conditional sentence, where he has a curfew of 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The conditional sentence will be followed by six months probation.
