NEW GLOUCESTER, Maine (AP) - The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department says a 40-year-old woman and three teenage boys have been arrested in connection with a series of home burglaries over the past few months in Gray, New Gloucester and Pownal.
Police say Juanita Small of New Gloucester was charged with attempted burglary and theft.
The boys all between the ages of 15 and 17 have also been charged. Their names were not released because of their age.
Police say the suspects were literally caught in the act while robbing a New Gloucester home on June 28.
The burglaries resulted in the loss of jewelry, electronics, sporting equipment and alcohol. Some of the stolen items have been recovered.
