Detectives with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a wave of burglaries to self-storage units in North Yarmouth and New Gloucester.
The first batch was reported early Friday when customers at Walnut Hill self-storage in North Yarmouth discovered the locks on their storage units had been cut and items, including clothing, furniture, electronics and tools were stolen.
The owner of the business reported that others had been broken into and deputies determined that 41 in all had been opened, said police.
Two other storage unit burglaries were reported at New Gloucester Self Storage on Sabbathday Road on Friday.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Trevor Cote at the sheriff’s office, 774-1444.
