WILTON, Maine — A local woman was charged Thursday with stealing two firearms from the home where she was staying.

Donna Chartier, 50, was staying at a Prospect Street home where a rifle and shotgun were stolen, Wilton police Chief Heidi Wilcox said. The guns were valued at about $700 and were sold for $200, she said.

The person who bought them heard a report of a theft on Prospect Street in Wilton on a police scanner and contacted police, she said. The firearms were recovered.

Wilton Officer Michael Boucher arrested Chartier about 1 p.m. Thursday and took her to Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington. She is also facing a charge of violating bail conditions, Wilcox said.
