WATERVILLE, Maine — A man on probation was arrested early Thursday morning after he had broken into multiple vehicles at an apartment complex, according to police.

Clifford Dumont, 19, of Waterville is facing two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, a Class D misdemeanor, according to Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey.

Just before midnight on Wednesday, police had received a call from a resident of the Thayer Garden apartments on Quarry Road who had seen Dumont and three juveniles going through vehicles, Rumsey said.

Rumsey said the suspects appeared nervous when questioned by police, and Dumont had a backpack that the deputy chief said was stacked with items.

Officers put a probation hold on Dumont and arrested him. The juveniles, a 16-year-old male and two females, ages 15 and 17, respectively, were all summoned for motor vehicle burglary, Rumsey said.

Dumont was booked into the Kennebec County Jail, where he remained Friday.
