MACHIAS — Police say they’ve arrested two men in connection with a home burglary spree that covered at least five counties in Maine and affected nearly 40 victims.

Police say they’ve recovered over $20,000 worth of property, such as wood splitters, generators, outboards, a boat, and other items.

The Bangor Daily News says 53-year-old Richard “Twitch” Merritt of Thorndike and 42-year-old Randy Millay of Machiasport have been arrested.

Police say the burglaries occurred from northern Washington County all the way to central Waldo County.
