DEXTER, Maine — Local police are investigating a pair of burglaries that occurred on Sunday and Monday.
On Sunday morning, the Bwarts Quick Stop on Corinna Road was broken into, according to Dexter Police Chief Kevin Wintle.
Wintle said an undisclosed amount of cash, alcohol and miscellaneous items were taken from the establishment. Entry was made through a back door.
On Monday evening, a homeowner returned to a residence to find that their house had been broken into, the police chief said.
Among items taken from the residence, which was broken into during the day, included a jewelry box with jewelry inside it and weapons, Wintle said.
Wintle said police believe multiple suspects were involved in both break-ins, and it’s possible that they could be linked.
