OLD TOWN, Maine — A 22-year-old local man was arrested Saturday after Old Town police executed a search warrant at his Water Street home and recovered items allegedly stolen from two businesses and a residence.

Brian Adam Corvino, 22, remained at Penobscot County Jail late Tuesday night, an official at Penobscot County Jail confirmed. Corvino’s bail has been set at $750.

According to  Detective Tom Adams, Old Town police were investigating a series of burglaries when they developed leads that enabled them to obtain a search warrant for Corvino’s home, where many of the items reported stolen were recovered.

According to Adams, the burglaries were reported:

— On Feb. 1 at Jason’s NY Style Pizza on Main Street, where a 40-inch flat-screen television, video game systems, portable car navigation systems, cash and food allegedly were taken. Adams said the stolen items were worth about $2,800.

— On Feb. 27 at a Front Street residence, where an Alienware laptop, computer-related items  and jewelry were reported missing. The items were valued at about $1,200, Adams said.

— On March 6 at the Captain’s Joint on Main Street, where 258 items valued at more than $4,000 were taken. Adams said the missing merchandise included artisan-created glass and metal pipes and novelties and that a window was smashed to gain entry.

“We got a lot of it back,” Adams said of the stolen goods. He said most of the electronics from the pizzeria and the Front Street residence have been located, but that police still were trying to track down some of the pipes taken from the Captain’s Joint.

Adams said that so far, Corvino has confessed to the Captain’s Joint break-in and has been charged with Class C felony burglary.

Because the suspect’s connection to the other two burglaries is not yet clear, he so far has been charged with receiving stolen property and theft by unauthorized taking, Adams said. He said Corvino also was charged with criminal mischief in connection with the broken window at the Captain’s Joint.

The burglaries remain under investigation, Adams said. He said that additional charges might be filed and other suspects might be involved.
