State Police Searching For Owners Of Stolen Items
State Police are tasked with finding the owners of a large amount of goods that have been stolen from storage units in Central Maine.
The items, which include chainsaws, tools, hunting and fishing equipment, coins, antiques, toys, and clothing were seized by police as part of an investigation into burglaries of mid coast storage lockers. 37-year-old Joshua Vandine was charged with burglary and possession of a stolen gun as a result of that investigation and two U-Haul truckloads of stolen loot confiscated. The Thomaston man had allegedly been stealing from the units for the past two years.
Now, it's up to the Troopers to figure out who the stuff belongs to, which will be no easy task. They're suggesting that owners of storage units should check them out, if they haven't already. The thefts are likely in Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox, and Waldo counties, and could date back as far as 2016. Anyone who discovers they have items missing should contact either Trooper Adam McNaughton or Trooper Niles Krech at (207) 624-8947, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to make an appointment to view the items that have been recovered.
