HARTLAND, Maine — A teenage boy is facing a burglary charge after police say he broke into a Mill Street residence on Saturday and stole a laptop.

The 15-year-old, whose name was not disclosed because he is a juvenile, allegedly broke into the residence Saturday morning, Chief Deputy Dale Lancaster of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office said.

The invasion was reported by the homeowner around 10:30 a.m., according to Lancaster.

The suspect had apparently removed an air conditioner from a window to gain entry to the home, the chief deputy said.

In addition to the laptop, a small amount of money was stolen from the residence, Lancaster said.

Investigation revealed the boy was already reporting to a juvenile probation officer for the theft of a pickup truck that occurred in Hartland on June 20, Lancaster said.

In addition to the burglary charge, the boy was also charged with possession of stolen property.

The teen was brought to the Mountain View Correctional Center in Charleston following his arrest.
