ACTON  — The York County Sheriff’s Department says an adult male and two juveniles are facing charges stemming from two burglaries and attempted arson cases in the Maine town of Acton.

Officials say that at about 1 p.m. Sunday, two Acton residents arrived at their home to find a male standing on their porch. Upon being spotted, the male yelled at another person inside the home and then ran toward the back.

The homeowners noticed that someone had tried to set their bed on fire.

Officials say a nearby house had also been burglarized.

The juveniles are being held at the Long Creek Youth Development Center.

The adult, 21-year-old Michael Anthony Coffin, of Acton, is at the Cumberland County Jail. He’s due in court Tuesday.

It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
