WATERBORO — A Waterboro man faces theft and trespassing charges after he allegedly stole firewood from a Blueberry Road wood lot.

The owner of the land reported to the York County Sheriff’s Office at the beginning of October that he had experienced ongoing thefts of recently cut and split firewood. The sheriff’s office, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Maine Warden Service investigated and identified James Coffman, 44, as the thief, the sheriff’s office said in a release.

Investigators used hidden cameras, usually used to catch poachers, in order to identify Coffman.

Coffman was charged Tuesday and was released on $500 bail. The sheriff’s office and an inmate work crew retrieved two cords of stolen wood from Coffman’s property, the release said.
