A South Portland man, who recently was released from jail following a burglary conviction, is expected in court Wednesday to face new charges of burglary after allegedly breaking into homes and cars in the Lovell Street area.

A man woke at 2:30 a.m. Monday to find Adam Black standing over him in his bedroom, police said. Black ran but was found nearby hiding behind a car, police said. He had with him several items stolen from area cars and homes, police said.

Black pled guilty to burglary Feb. 2 and was released from jail so recently he had not had time to see his probation officer, police said. Black is now being held without bail on charges of burglary and burglary to a motor vehicle, both felonies.
