JAY — Police are investigating a report of a home invasion late Saturday on Morse Hill Road off Route 17 in North Jay.

The 54-year-old homeowner reported to police that a male wearing a mask to conceal his face came into his mobile home brandishing a handgun and ordered him to put a blanket over his head, Detective Michael Mejia said Monday.

The middle-aged resident, who had been awake on the couch, told police the robber demanded to know where he kept his keys, he said. The suspect also removed two cordless phones from the residence.

Prescription medications were also taken, but police had not received a detailed list as of Monday.

After the robber left, the homeowner went next door and called 911 at about 10:47 p.m.

Cpl. Jeffrey Fournier and officer Will Herrin responded, and Mejia was also called.


There was no forced entry into the home.

It is estimated the robber was in the residence for less than five minutes, Mejia said.

“We did collect some evidence from the scene,” he said.

It will be taken to be analyzed at the Maine State Police Crime Laboratory in Augusta.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area is asked to call police at 897-6766.
