BANGOR, Maine — Two men were arrested early Wednesday after a Bradford Commons resident spotted them going through cars at the apartment complex and notified police.
The resident was able to give police detailed clothing descriptions of Corey Stevens, 22, and Scott Fleeman, 20, both of Bangor, according to Bangor police Sgt. Cathy Rumsey.
Both suspects were charged with motor vehicle burglary and theft, Rumsey said. Stevens also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Bangor police Officer Kim Donnell was able to connect both suspects to one car burglary, Rumsey said, and numerous stolen items were recovered.
Rumsey said motor vehicle burglaries aren’t often taken seriously by the public, but that clearly isn’t the case.
“It is definitely worth reporting,” the sergeant said. “Even if we cannot solve your particular case, our officers should be made aware of problem areas in the city so that we can increase patrols in those locations.”
Any resident who has their vehicle burglarized should call police immediately. Residents are also advised to keep doors locked and valuables out of vehicles.
Stevens and Fleeman are being held at Penobscot County Jail.
