Two charged in break-in




Two men, aged 25 and 34, face several charges following an incident on Colonel Talbot Road in Houghton.

Police were notified at 11:37 a.m. on Oct. 11 by a concerned citizen reporting a break and enter. A vehicle was observed dropping off a man at the front of a home. The man then gained entry into the home.

As police arrived, the man fled the home and ran through a corn field. The driver of the vehicle also fled.

However, both were later arrested at an address in Oxford County.

The men are each charged with break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, possession of break-in instruments and possession of hydromorphone, percodan and marijuana.
