2nd man charged in camp burglary spree on Green Lake

By Mario Moretto, BDN Staff

ELLSWORTH, Maine — A Lamoine man has been summoned on charges related to a spate of burglaries that took place at camps on Green Lake in February and March.

Cory McMillan, 19, was charged Sunday with six counts of burglary, seven counts of theft by unauthorized taking and one count of theft by unauthorized use, according to Detective Dotty Small of the Ellsworth Police Department.

Last week, Small charged Dakota Dunphy, 19, of Ellsworth with nine counts of burglary and eight counts of theft.

In total, nine cottages on Sunset Park Road were burglarized over four separate nights, Small said. Dunphy had named McMillan as an accomplice for some of those burglaries, she said.

Stolen were a 1991 Toyota van, ATV, chain saw, handgun, two flat-screen TVs, video games, DVDs and several household goods, Small said. Many, but not all, of the items have been recovered.

Small said Dunphy was identified as a suspect when the stolen ATV showed up in a for-sale ad in Uncle Henry’s. The rightful owner contacted the seller and the police, who say Dunphy was attempting to make some quick cash on the ill-gotten four-wheeler.

Police also say the van was sold, but it has since been recovered and returned to its owner.

Dunphy and McMillan are scheduled to be arraigned in Hancock County Superior Court on Aug. 22. They each face up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 fines.
