FRYEBURG POLICE INVESTIGATE BREAK-INS

by Gair on October 31, 2013

FRYEBURG, MAINE POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING TWO BREAK-INS, THE LATEST EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING AT A RESIDENCE IN SANBORN FARM ESTATES NEAR ELKIN BROOK RD.

CHIEF PHIL WEYMOUTH SAYS A COUPLE REPORTED WAKING UP WEDNESDAY MORNING AND FINDING THEIR CAR HAD BEEN PUSHED OUT OF THEIR GARAGE INTO THEIR DRIVEWAY AND SOMEONE HAD ENTERED THEIR MUD ROOM AND TAKEN A PURSE AND A CELL PHONE.

THE CHIEF SAYS THE CELL PHONE CASE WAS RECOVERED, ALONG WITH THE PURSE, WITHOUT ITS MONEY.

THE HOME BREAK-IN FOLLOWED ANOTHER INTRUSION EARLY MONDAY MORNING ABOUT A HALF MILE AWAY WHERE SOMEONE BROKE INTO THE HARVEST HILLS ANIMAL SHELTER ON ROUTE 302 NEAR THE BRIDGTON TOWN LINE.

WEYMOUTH SAYS ONE OF HIS OFFICERS CHECKED THE SHELTER LATE SUNDAY NIGHT AND THEN RESPONDED TO AN ALARM AROUND 2 A.M. MONDAY, FINDING ALL THE DOORS WERE CLOSED, AND THEN AGAIN TO AN ALARM AT 4 A.M. MONDAY WHEN THREE DOORS WERE FOUND OPEN.
THE SUSPECTS CUT AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION, APPARENTLY THINKING THAT WOULD KILL THE ALARM, BUT WEYMOUTH SAYS THE ALARM HAD A BATTERY BACKUP.

WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF THE KEYS TO THE SHELTER’S VAN, NOTHING WAS TAKEN AND NO ANIMALS WERE HURT.

THE CHIEF SAYS IT’S UNUSUAL FOR SIMILAR TYPES OF BREAK-INS TO HAPPEN AT A BUSINESS AND A HOME.

OFFICERS HAVE INCREASED PATROLS AND THE CASES REMAIN UNDER INVESTIGATION.
