CARROLL PLANTATION, Maine — Police arrested two men last week in connection with a Carroll Plantation burglary in late June.

Daniel Legasse, 42, and Nicholas Holmes, 21, both of Lincoln, were arrested Friday and charged with burglarizing a home and stealing several rifles, shotguns and utility trailer from a summer residence while the owner was away, according to Detective Sgt. William Flagg.

Some of the weapons were recovered from a trailer in Lincoln, but Flagg wouldn’t say how many were found because the incident remains under investigation.

“We’re trying to track down the others,” he said Tuesday.

Holmes was arrested in Bangor. Legasse was arrested in Lincoln with assistance from Lincoln police, Flagg said.

Flagg asked that anyone with information related to the case or the whereabouts of the missing firearms call the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department.

Holmes faces charges of Class B burglary and violation of probation. The Class B charge could carry up to 10 years of incarceration and up to a $20,000 fine.

Legasse is charged with burglary and theft by unauthorized taking, both Class B offenses, and possession of a firearm by a felon and violation of bail, Class C offenses. The Class B charge could carry up to 10 years of incarceration and up to a $20,000 fine. The Class C offense could carry up to 5 years of incarceration and up to a $5,000 fine.

Holmes remained in Penobscot County Jail on Tuesday afternoon, with cash bail set at $1,000.

Lagasse was released Tuesday morning on $30,000 surety bail, according to a jail official.
