Maine Police Seek Massachusetts Men For Theft Of Firearms
Police in Maine and Massachusetts are looking for two men suspected of stealing six firearms from a home in Lebanon.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says authorities from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms have joined the search for 29-year-old Gabriel Calderon and 35-year-old Paul Votano, both of Lynn, Massachusetts. Already arrested in connection with the case is 21-year-old Isabella Lupis of Salem, Massachusetts.
The three people are suspects in a burglary that took place at a home in the Maine town of Lebanon on March 13th. Stolen from that residence were six firearms, knives, jewelry, electronics, and numerous other items. The next day, Massachusetts State Police searched a vehicle in Revere, in which one of the stolen guns from Lebanon was recovered. State Police then searched some homes in the greater Boston area, which resulted in the recovery of two more of the firearms.
On March 19th, Lupis was arrested by Massachusetts State Police and is being held on a Fugitive from Justice Charge. She will be extradited back to Maine in the near future. Calderon and Votano are still at large.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible.
