Police Arrest 3 In Connection With Theft In China
On Feb. 4, State Police arrested three residents of a home in Edgecomb and charged them in connection with a theft from a store in China three days before Christmas.
State Police Lt. Aaron Hayden said the trio stole grow lights from Laverdiere’s General Store on Dec. 22 and then traded the items for heroin hours later. The value of the grow lights was over $500. The lights have not been recovered, Maine Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland said.
Arrested Thursday at their home on McKay Road in Edgecomb were Mark James, 49, Lisa Gosselin, 40 and Tricia Barry, 42.
All are charged with theft by unauthorized taking or transfer. In addition, Barry had two unrelated arrest warrants issued for her out of Kennebec County, said McCausland.
Assisting with the arrests and a search of their home were drug agents from MDEA and Lincoln County Deputies. The trio was taken to the Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset.
