FRYEBURG — Fryeburg police said Wednesday that their investigation into a string of home burglaries that occurred last fall continues after the arrest a day earlier of one suspect.

Detective Sgt. Joshua Potvin said in a news release that the department’s probe into the East Fryeburg home invasions that last October and November continues because police are not certain that 19-year-old Dylan Thorner of Fryeburg, who was arrested Tuesday, acted alone.

Thorner has been charged with eight felonies, including arson, burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, theft and criminal mischief.

“We are still actively involved in this investigation and determined to establish if Thorner acted alone. All those involved in committing these senseless crimes will be brought to justice,” Potvin said in a statement.

According to police, Thorner’s list of targets included the Harvest Hills Animal Shelter as well as homes on North Elkins Brook Road, Sanborn Road and Baker Circle. He also is accused of setting fire to a home at 64 Belair Estates Road.

The break-ins left residents of the village of East Fryeburg feeling terrorized at the time, police have said.
