LISBON, Maine — Lisbon police are investigating two burglaries in residential neighborhoods in recent weeks, including one on Sept. 29 in which two handguns were stolen.
A homeowner on Summer Street reported to police that someone kicked in the door of a home on Sept. 29, went through the residence and stole two handguns valued at about $600 and “several hundred dollars in jewelry,” Lisbon Police Chief Marc Hagan said Friday.
The homeowner was uncertain whether the .357 magnum revolver and .22 caliber semi-automatic handgun were loaded at the time they were stolen, Hagan said.
On Tuesday, a homeowner on Route 9, also known as Ridge Road, reported returning home to discover someone had gone through the home and stolen an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Hagan.
The burglaries, which took place about two miles apart, remain under investigation. Hagan said police are not sure whether they’re related.
“Both burglaries took place in residential neighborhoods,” he said, “so keep an eye on your neighbors’ property and, if you don’t think anyone should be in there, call us.”
Anyone with information about the two burglaries can call Lisbon Detective Sgt. Bill Tapley at 353-2500.
