PORTLAND — Portland police are trying to find the owners of a number of items recovered after three people were charged with breaking into cars in the area around Deering High School.

Police arrested three people Sunday morning in connection with a series of car burglaries in the area of Ludlow Street and Candlewick Terrace. Police recovered clothing, GPS units, iPods and credit cards.

Police spotted Joshua Walker, 37, in the area at 7:20 a.m. Sunday and charged him with two counts of burglary to a motor vehicle and carrying a concealed knife.

Police then went to Motel 6 where they charged Jeremy Day, 33, and Kristina Walker, 43, who is Joshua Walker's wife. They were charged with two counts of receiving stolen property and possession of cocaine.

Police ask that anyone who has had items stolen but have not reported it to police to do so to help them identify the owners of recovered items. That can be done online at the city's website by clicking on the "police" link then the "submit an online police report" link.
