43-year-old Paul St. Onge of Hudson
BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - State Police say they have arrested two men in connection with a burglary spree in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties that began back in June.
State Police, along with the Penobscot Sheriff's Office and Bangor Police, have charged 43-year-old Paul St. Onge of Hudson and 37-year-old Eugene Horn of Bangor with burglary and theft. Both were arrested last month and have been held at the Penobscot County Jail in lieu of bail.
Officials say, Troopers began looking at the two following a burglary on September 9 at Harvey RVs on Broadway in Glenburn. As the investigation unfolded, it was discovered the two are believed responsible for upwards of a dozen burglaries into businesses, houses and seasonal properties in the two counties.
Police say the pair stole items that included electronics, furniture, jewelry, household appliances, guns and trailers. Some of the property has been recovered and efforts continue to locate remaining items. Police say that the two used Horn's red Ford Escape with Maine license plate 7329TN to travel to the burglary sites.
Investigators say the two sold much of the property that has not been located and are asking the public to call State Police if they suspect they may have purchased some of the stolen items or saw Horn's SUV during the summer. The State Police Orono number is 866-2122.
