LIVERMORE FALLS — A local man was arrested Thursday after police discovered stolen jewelry had been pawned in his name at a Lewiston shop, Lt. Thomas Gould said.

Livermore Falls police have been investigating a theft of jewelry from a Park Street residence that was reported last week, he said.

Gould arrested Dylan Couturier, 20, of Livermore Falls on a charge of theft after an investigation, Gould said.

Police recovered most, if not all, of the property at the pawn shop, he said.

The jewelry value is about $2,000, he said.

Couturier also admitted during an interview that he was in possession of a laptop computer that he knew was stolen when police executed a search warrant in late December at his home on Park Street.

Couturier’s brother, Logan Couturier, 23, of Livermore Falls, was charged after a break-in at the RSU 36 Central Office building in Livermore Falls in late December. Stolen in that burglary was more than $4,000 worth of goods, including four laptops and $925 in gift cards to local businesses.

Police recovered most of the stolen property, except for a $50 gift card.

Gould said he charged Dylan Couturier in that case on Thursday with receiving stolen property.

He is being held at the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn on a probation violation in connection to burglaries and vandalism at camps on Porter Lake in Strong and New Vineyard in 2008.

He was sentenced in 2009 to 2½ years in jail with all but 30 days suspended and two years of probation for his part in burglaries and vandalism.

Dylan Couturier was one of seven people charged in the spree that caused more than $100,000 damage to 27 camps.
