BUXTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Buxton Police said Monday that they have dropped all charges against two of the people accused of beating a Buxton woman. This comes after police dropped charges last Friday against Michael Crockett Jr., who was the alleged third member of the group.
On April 11, Buxton Police said Deborah Nielsen walked in on three burglars in her home on Callahan Street.The burglars then allegedly tied her up, stole money, and left the scene. On Thursday, May 15, police arrested Stacy Day, 35, and Gregory Hoar, 29. Both were charged with one count of Class A Robbery and two counts of Class B Aggravated Assault.
The Buxton Police Chief said though all charges against Crockett Jr., Hoar and Day have been dropped, the investigation is still ongoing and he expects additional arrests.
Crockett's attorney, Amy Fairfield, hired a private detective who was able to find both video and sworn testimony to back up Crockett's story that he was actually playing pool with friends when the crime happened. Fairfield said she believed the investigator also found evidence that cleared Hoar and Day.
