LIVERMORE FALLS — Police released four boys to their parents after they found them in a vacant building Wednesday on Union Street.

The three boys from Jay and one from Livermore Falls, aged 15 to 16, were removed from the building and warned to stay out of it, police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said Thursday. The teens were in possession of tobacco-related material, he said.

A person had reported seeing the boys enter the building at 3:45 p.m., he said.

At 6 p.m. another report came in that someone had forced open a window and pried open a padlock to gain entry into a vacant building on Pleasant Street, he said. No one was found in the building.

There was about $100 in damage done.

Police have been dealing with people entering vacant buildings during the past two weeks.

Police went to check on a vacant building at 19 Gagnon St. on Wednesday morning to see if anyone was in it. The door had been opened again, Steward said.

Police and the owner of the building secured it Friday after two people were found in it. A few days before that, two other people were found in it. Overall, three have been charged with criminal trespassing related to that building.
