A teenager wanted by police in connection with burglaries and a car theft in New Hampshire and Maine was caught in Belfast.

The incident began on June 16th, when officials in Waldo County received information about two juveniles who had run away from a school in New Hampshire, and had subsequently stolen a vehicle from a neighboring town. The two teens were tracked to a home on the Mary Ordway Road in Liberty, Maine that belonged to one of their relatives. Both suspects were sent back to New Hampshire.

Three days later, on June 19th, the Waldo County Sheriff's Office was notified by the Farmington Police Department that one of the male juveniles had run away again, and was a suspect in numerous motor vehicle thefts. Corporal Jones went back to the home on Mary Ordway Road and found the 14-year-old, but the teen ran into the woods before he could be taken into custody. Deputies searched into the night and started again the morning, but weren't able to locate the youth.

On the afternoon of June 20th, the Sheriff's Office received a complaint about a camp on Stevens Pond that appeared that someone had gone inside and damaged the property. Deputy Jon Shaw responded and reported that it appeared the same teen was responsible. A search was launched around the area of the camp. It took nearly two hours, and the help of Police Officer Travis Spencer and his K9, Dex, but the teenager was finally caught.  It's believed the 14-year-old may have been responsible for break-ins at three or more camps, stealing various items and causing damage. He was taken to Mountain VIew Juvenile Detention Center in Charleston.
