FARMINGTON — Two more people have been charged in a recent spree of car burglaries in the High, Anson and Perham streets area.

Farmington police have charged Ronald Cairnie, 19, of New Portland with two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle and Wayne Anderson, 20, also of New Portland, with theft. Four cars were burglarized on July 25 and cash, credit and debit cards were stolen, Lt. Jack Peck said Tuesday.

Jeffrey Horton, 20, of New Portland was stopped that night and charged with burglary of a motor vehicle after the owner of one car saw him in her car and called police.

Horton had left the scene by the time police arrived, but the owner was able to give police a description and his license plate number.

When police stopped him, he had an MP3 player that was taken from the vehicle, along with cash, and credit and debit cards that he said belonged to his ex-girlfriend.

At that time, police were unaware of the other three car burglaries. All four vehicles were left unlocked.
