BANGOR, Maine — The second of three people arrested in connection with a Bangor-area burglary ring was indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury on 32 crimes including burglary, theft by unauthorized taking and breaking into a vehicle.

Randall J. Cressey, 23, of Bangor and formerly Hampden, was indicted on 15 counts of burglary, 16 counts of theft by unauthorized taking and one count of burglary of a motor vehicle.

“We indicted William Cushman, the co-defendant, last month,” Michael Roberts, deputy district attorney for Penobscot County, said Wednesday after the indictments were handed up.

Cressey, Cushman and Bangor resident Courtney Braley, 18, were arrested on April 18 in connection with five burglaries in Veazie and four in Orrington on April 11 after a joint investigation that ultimately involved the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office and the Veazie, Bangor and Brewer police departments.

Cushman, 22, of Brewer was indicted May 28 by the Penobscot County grand jury on 15 counts of burglary, 16 counts of theft by unauthorized taking and one count each of possession of a firearm by a felon and burglary of a motor vehicle. He entered not guilty pleas on June 10 to the charges against him and is scheduled to appear in court in mid-July.

The trio’s alleged accomplices, Bianca Trask, 19, of Brewer and a 16-year-old boy from Bangor, have not yet been indicted.

If convicted, both men face up to 10 years in prison on each burglary charge and fines of up to $20,000. Depending on the value of the items taken in each theft, they face between six months and five years of incarceration and fines from $1,000 to $5,000. They also could be ordered to pay restitution for unrecovered items.

Cressey remains at Penobscot County Jail, a jail official said Wednesday.
