FARMINGTON, Maine — Police said Friday they have identified three suspects involved in multiple vehicle burglaries at Franklin Memorial Hospital Tuesday night.

The trio were caught on a security camera at about 8 p.m. when several vehicles were broken into. Cash, cigarettes and electronic devices were taken. The total value of the stolen items came to more than $500.

The Farmington Police Department asked the public for assistance in catching the suspects, and the Sun Journal printed a photograph.

“Your readers produced several tips which helped form the direction of this investigation and has resulted in a significant amount of property being returned,” Sgt. Edward H. Hastings IV said in a news release. “This property will be returned to the victims and the juveniles involved will be referred to juvenile court.”

Police are not releasing the names of the juveniles.
