DEXTER, Maine — A 34-year-old local man faces a burglary charge after he broke into a town deli last month, according to police.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on April 24, Dexter police went to Toot’s Deli on Spring Street after it was reported the glass on the front door had been smashed, according to Police Chief Kevin Wintle.

Someone smashed through the door, grabbed a safe, and then escaped through the broken door, according to Wintle.

Video surveillance captured the burglary, Wintle said.

An investigation ensued, and on Friday, suspect Christopher Richardson was arrested and charged with burglary, a Class C felony, Wintle said.

Richardson is scheduled to appear in court in Bangor on June 12. Wintle said the safe has not been recovered.
