SKOWHEGAN, Maine — Two men were indicted this week on robbery and conspiracy charges resulting from an armed home invasion last month in Hartland.

The Somerset County grand jury also indicted 10 other on unrelated charges.

David McGregor Jr., 19, of Hartland and Gary Page Jr., 26, of Canaan allegedly burst into a Route 23 home on Feb. 12, armed with a knife and a wooden club, and concealing their faces. Police said the men wanted to steal marijuana.

According to police, the men demanded that the couple and their teenage son give them marijuana, and robbed them of a purse and drugs.

Police said the men ran from the home through the woods to Old County Road and got into a vehicle that had been left there.

During the robbery, the adult male got into an altercation with the men and cut his hand. He was treated at a hospital after police were called to the scene.

The robbery charge is a Class A felony which carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison. The conspiracy charge is a Class B felony, which could mean up to 10 years in prison.

In addition to the robbery and conspiracy charges, McGregor also was indicted on two other felony theft charges. Those incidents took place at Shop ’n Save in Pittsfield and in Hartland, earlier in February.

Also indicted was Michael Phillips, 21, New York City for the July 23, 2008 armed robbery of the Franklin-Somerset Federal Credit Union on Main Street in Madison. He was extradited from New York to Maine and is being held at Somerset County Jail.
