DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — Two men charged with burglarizing Moosehead Motorsports in Greenville Junction Township last June were among 12 people indicted by the Piscataquis County grand jury on Friday.

John McClintock, 24, of Old Town and William Wheelock, 21, of Windham both were indicted on charges of Class B and Class C burglary and two counts each of Class E theft by unauthorized taking. Wheelock also was charged with Class B refusing to submit to arrest. They are co-defendants.

According to Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Guy Dow, the duo broke into, ransacked and stole snowmobile apparel, helmets and an outboard motor from Moosehead Motorsports. They used an ATV to get there and also broke into a camp and ransacked it, said Dow.

“McClintock’s name came up in the investigation and he denied it,” said Dow, adding that the thefts took place during the night of June 26 and the morning of June 27. “Greenville police arrested Wheelock with a duffel bag full of apparel from the place. The tags were still on some of the clothing.”

McClintock was arrested in early July on a probation matter, said Dow, and while he was in jail, “he wrote a letter of apology to the owners of Moosehead Motorsports and admitted to stealing,” said Dow.

Jeffery Banker, 39, Brownville Junction, unlawful possession of scheduled drug, operating after suspension.
