Old Town police: No arrests in hunters breakfast vehicle burglary

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

OLD TOWN, Maine — No suspects have been arrested in the case of a motor vehicle burglary at an Old Town hunter’s breakfast on Saturday, police said Wednesday.

Old Town police Capt. Kyle Smart said officers are ironing out details on the case.

Two guns, knives and other hunting equipment were snatched from a hunter’s Jeep that was parked on Main Street during a breakfast at Riverfront Park. The vehicle was unlocked.

Smart said vehicle burglaries and thefts are extremely rare at hunters breakfasts, as hunters have always had a tight bond.

“In all the years that’s been going on I don’t remember any of that happening,” Smart said of the traditional Riverfront Park event.

Smart said the crowd typically consists of hunters from the Old Town area.

The captain is also advising hunters and residents to keep vehicles locked. The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office recently reported they dealt with 17 vehicle burglaries in Orrington last weekend.

Anyone with information on the Old Town burglary should contact police at 827-3984.
