ROCKLAND, Maine — A 28-year-old Rockland woman has been charged in connection with a home burglary two weeks ago.
Heidi Moores was arrested last week on charges of receiving stolen property, hindering apprehension and unsworn falsification.
She was arrested after a search warrant was executed and an item that was stolen during last month’s burglary was recovered, according to Rockland police.
The investigation began when officers found a vehicle abandoned on Bog Road on Feb. 23. Police contacted the owner of the Dodge Durango and learned the owner was out of town and that the sports utility vehicle was last seen in his garage at home.
Police went to the West Meadow Road residence and found that the home had been burglarized and that a number of items had been taken. Police also discovered that a second vehicle — a blue Honda sedan — had been stolen. That vehicle soon was located at the Coughlin Park housing development on upper Rankin Street in Rockland.
Police did not indicate how they linked Moores to the burglary.
The investigation into the burglary and theft continues, Deputy Rockland Police Chief Wally Tower said Monday.
