CARIBOU, Maine — Caribou police have made an arrest in connection with a Jan. 3 home invasion at an Access Highway residence.

Eric Mowatt, 25, of Limestone was apprehended Friday and charged with Class A Robbery, Class C felony theft and Class C felony assault, according to information released by Caribou Police Chief Michael Gahagan on Friday evening.

At around 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 3, Caribou police received a call reporting an armed home invasion had occurred at the residence when two armed men were alleged to have entered the home in disguise, brandished handguns and demanded money, according to the released information.

An adult and child were in the residence at the time but were not injured, according to Caribou police.

The two men got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and several other items, Gahagan said. Evidence gathered at the scene led officers to Mowatt who was apprehended without incident, charged and taken to the Aroostook County Jail where bail has been set at $25,000 cash.

An initial court date has been set for May 21 in Superior Court.

The second male has not been located and the ongoing investigation is being conducted by Caribou police officers Matthew Cummings and Keith Ouellette.

Anyone with information about this incident may call the Caribou Police Department at 207-493-3301.
