DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — Burglars struck several homes and camps in the Elliotsville region between Thursday night and Saturday.

The doors were kicked in to gain entry into the buildings, according to Investigator Jamie Kane of the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department.

Kane said the burglars broke into buildings on Elliotsville Road, at Greenwood Pond and Bodfish Valley.

The owners, mostly seasonal residents, are being contacted about the break-ins, Kane said.

Medicines, a chain saw and headlight lamps were among items taken from a couple of homes, according to Kane.
