BANGOR, Maine — Investigators are asking anyone who thinks they might have purchased some of the items stolen in a burglary spree over the summer — or who may have seen the SUV used by the burglars — to call the Maine State Police barracks in Orono.
Stolen items include electronics, furniture, jewelry, household appliances, guns and trailers, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said.
The items were taken during a burglary spree in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties that began in June, he said. Some of the property has been recovered and efforts continue to locate remaining items.
Paul St. Onge, 43, of Hudson and Eugene Horn, 37, of Bangor, were arrested Oct. 1 on burglary and theft charges in connection with the spree, McCausland said. Both men are being held at the Penobscot County Jail in lieu of bail, McCausland said.
According to McCausland, state troopers began looking at the two after a Sept. 9 burglary at Harvey RVs on Broadway in Glenburn. As the investigation unfolded, it began to appear that the Onge and Horn were responsible for more than a dozen burglaries of businesses, houses and seasonal properties in the two counties.
The two used Horn’s red Ford Escape with Maine license plate 7329TN to travel to the burglary sites, McCausland said. State police also are asking anyone who saw Horn’s SUV during the summer to call the Orono barracks at 866-2122
The team of investigators who coordinated the case are Troopers Tucker Bonnevie and Jarod Stedman, Penobscot County Deputy Detective Robert Jordan and Bangor police Detective James Carr.
