WATERBORO — Two York County men have been arrested in connection with a burglary that took place at a home in Waterboro on Wednesday.
The York County Sheriff’s Office arrested 22-year-old Travis Wakefield of Lyman, and 22-year-old Nathan Desfosses of Shapleigh, after they allegedly broke into a home and stole 10 handguns.
Police said the homeowner returned Wednesday afternoon to find the men fleeing from his home. The homeowner notified authorities, who used a state police canine to track the men.
Trooper Matt Williams and his dog, Landy, found the handguns that had been hidden in woods near the home. Landy also flushed out the suspects, who were hiding nearby.
Wakefield and Desfosses were charged with burglary and are being held at the York County Jail on $10,000 bail. They are scheduled to be arraigned in Biddeford District Court on Friday.
