WALES, Maine — A home invasion in the Androscoggin County town of Wales that was reported to Maine State Police by the homeowner on Wednesday turned out to be a hoax, according to authorities.

State police spokesman Stephen McCausland told the Bangor Daily News on Thursday after completing investigation of the incident that the home invasion never happened.

State police troopers and detectives had been called to a Centre Road residence after the homeowner reported that two men had broken into the house. printed on August 22, 2017
