A former Swanton resident was found guilty of felony theft following a three-day jury trial in Garrett County Circuit Court.

Mitchell Cyril Gibellino, 51, could face a maximum penalty of 15 years incarceration, a fine of $25,000 and payment of restitution.

Judge Jim Sherbin ordered a presentence investigation report to be completed prior to sentencing.

Gibellino was charged Dec. 8 after the State’s Attorney’s Office found evidence that Gibellino had received $70,000 from a neighbor, representing that the money would be used for a construction project that never took place.

Gibellino has been in jail in default of $250,000 bond since his arrest.
