BANGOR, Maine — Construction workers at Mary Snow School returned to work Monday morning to find some of their equipment missing, and the crime was one of nine burglaries reported over the weekend, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
“That’s a lot for a weekend,” the sergeant said, adding it appears the break-ins are not connected. “There are a number of burglaries under investigation at a couple of businesses and residences.”
The first burglary was reported on Bolling Drive just before midnight Friday and Bangor responded to two reports of business burglaries Monday morning, Edwards said.
“This morning we went to a residence on Hillside Drive [with a home day care] and we’re working on one at Mary Snow School,” the sergeant said.
A thief or thieves broke into a construction trailer at the school, which is located on Broadway, but what was taken was not released.
Sunday “there was one at an apartment house on Third Street and on [Saturday] the 14th we had five,” Edwards said.
Homes on Essex, Lincoln, Green and Center streets and Mildred Avenue were hit on Saturday, the sergeant said.
The seven home burglaries were reported to police after the residents got home, and the business burglaries were reported when the businesses opened on Monday. The initial investigation indicates there is no connection among the crimes, Edwards said.
“Maybe it was one of those weekends,” he said.
