MATTAMISCONTIS TOWNSHIP, Maine — Maine State Police arrested three people on felony burglary charges last week after the trio was caught red-handed stealing from a Mattamiscontis Township home, state police Trooper Matt Grant said on Monday.

“They were found a short distance from the residence with a majority of the heating system that had been ripped from the home,” the trooper said.

James Davis, 44, of Orland, Stanley Solomon, 46, of Lincoln and Tony Woodard Sr., 42, of Milo were caught in Chester with a truck filled with the stolen metal, according to police.

Each man faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of the felony burglary charges against them. Davis and Woodard also were charged with felony violation of their bail conditions.
