EASTON, Maine — Two men were arrested, and one man remains jailed, on charges they stole a large number of glass test tubes Nov. 17 from Easton High School, state police said Sunday.

Tim Rooney, 28, of Fort Fairfield was charged with burglary and theft. Also arrested was Erik Lamoreau, 33, of Easton, on charges of possession of stolen property and violation of conditions of release. The arrests occurred Friday afternoon, state police Sgt. Brian L. Harris said.

The burglary was reported after Easton officials discovered that someone had entered the school and gained access to the chemistry lab, Harris said.

Harris declined to say why the tubes were stolen. Troopers Dennis Quint and Jeff Clark handled the investigation, and more arrests are possible, Harris said.

Rooney posted bail, while Lamoreau is due in court Monday.
