KENNEBUNK, Maine — Kennebunk police arrested a New Hampshire man on burglary charges after a string of pre-Christmas break-ins in the town.

Benjamin Macieski, 23, of New Boston, N.H., was arrested Monday morning on one felony count of burglary for his alleged role in a Sunday night break-in at what police described as “a Main Street business location.”

According to a news release issued Monday afternoon by Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee of the Kennebunk Police Department, “officers investigating the scene determined, between witness testimony and evidence collected, that … Macieski” was a suspect in the overnight crime.

Macieski, who Bean Burpee wrote has been staying in the Kennebunk area recently and has had contact with police during his limited time there, was located inside Cummings’ Market grocery store Monday morning and arrested there.

“Two laptop computers, several key lock boxes and sunglasses were recovered as evidence,” Bean Burpee wrote, in part. “Police are continuing to investigate Macieski’s possible involvement in a Lower Village business burglary, also reported to police on [Monday], as well as several motor vehicle burglaries that had occurred overnight in the Main Street and Storer Street locations.”

Macieski was unable to make bail and was transported to the York County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in York County Superior Court in Alfred on Feb. 19, according to police.
