BUCKSPORT, Maine — A joint effort by three law enforcement agencies led to the arrest early Tuesday morning of three area men in connection with a break-in at a residence on the Silver Lake Road.
According to Sgt.

All three were charged with burglary. Murphy was also charged with violation of conditions of release.
The joint operation included officers from Bucksport, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, Winchester said.
