OXFORD — Three Norway men and a juvenile were charged early Thursday morning with burglary at a store and redemption center.

Police say David M. Ducas, 18, Anthony W. Edwards, 18, Justin Martin, 19, and a juvenile male broke a window at Fore Street Redemption center Wednesday night and stole money, alcohol, lottery tickets, candy and bags of returnables.

The three adults were charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

According to Lt. Michael Ward of the Oxford Police Department, Maine State Police trooper Daniel Hanson was driving past the business when he noticed the parking lights of a truck.

Ward said the men attempted to drive away but Hanson pulled them over. He, Norway police and Sgt. Rickie Jack of the Oxford police assisted in the arrest and in the recovery of stolen items.

Ward said when the men were caught, they had already made two trips back to a Norway residence with stolen goods and had returned to the scene to take more.

“We got a majority of it back,” Ward said. He said a few items were still missing. The value of the merchandise and returnables taken from the redemption center came to about $1,100, Ward said.

Ward called the incident a random act. “They were just driving around,” he said. They threw a brick through a window to get into the building, he said.

The three adults were arrested early Thursday morning and bailed on $2,500 unsecured bond.
