NORRIDGEWOCK — Four men from Connecticut have been arrested in Maine for allegedly planning to rob a home where they thought marijuana was being grown.
They were arrested Sunday morning after someone reported suspicious activity in the central Maine town of Norridgewock.
Two suspects were arrested on foot and two were arrested in a car. They are all charged with criminal conspiracy to commit burglary.
A spokesman for the Somerset County Sheriff's Office says an investigation found that the men had traveled from Connecticut to Maine specifically to rob a home. Tools that can be used for a burglary were found in their vehicle.
They were identified as 23-year-old Jeremiah Samela of Bristol, Conn. and 20-year-old Michael Damato; 21-year-old Anthony Niklewski; and 24-year-old Kenneth Niklewski, all from Torrington, Conn.
