LIMESTONE, Maine — Officers with the Limestone Police Department have arrested a local man in connection with a Sept. 4 theft.
Police Investigator John Deveau said Wednesday evening that the arrest of Ricky Roussel stems from an incident on Ward Road.
According to Deveau, Officer Tim Morrison received a report of a theft of approximately $10,000 worth of farm equipment and metals from a residence.
A subsequent investigation pointed toward the 32-year-old Roussel, Deveau said, and Roussel was arrested Tuesday after police questioning.
Roussel has been charged with theft, a Class C crime, and violation of conditions of release.
Roussel has a criminal history. In July, he was convicted on a charge of unlawful possession of a scheduled drug in Aroostook County Superior Court in Caribou. He also has been convicted of three counts of violating conditions of release and operating a vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants, according to court rec-ords.
Bail on the theft charge was set at $1,000.
Additional charges are pending in this investigation, according to Deveau.
Police would like to thank the public for the information that led to the arrest and request that anyone with further information call the Police Department at 800-432-7842.
