A Naples man faces a series of charges after he allegedly broke into a pair of storage lockers at a Portland apartment house.

Police arrested Scott Valiere on Forest Street at about 11:30 p.m. Monday, discovering of bolt cutters in his back pack. Police had been called to 246 Park Ave. minutes earlier by a resident who said he confronted a burglar who had broken the locks off two storage units.

The resident told police he and his cousin confronted the burglar, at one point brandishing a stick in their efforts to keep him there until police arrived.

Valiere responded by pulling a survival-style knife on the pair, police said. As officers arrived, Valiere ran, police said.

Valiere was caught and charged with burglary, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, refusing to submit to arrest, criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools.

Police could not say yet whether anything was taken from the storage units.
