BANGOR, Maine — Two male transient teenagers are facing felony charges related to November break-ins at Webb’s RV Center on Hammond Street.

Nikolas Raines, 16, and Dana Tirrell III, 14, have been charged with three felonies each — aggravated criminal mischief, burglary of a motor vehicle and theft by unauthorized taking.

Raines is scheduled to make his first court appearance Monday in 3rd District Court in Bangor. Tirrell is scheduled to appear on Monday, Jan. 12. Both are being held at the Mountain View Youth Development Center in Charleston.

Bangor police on Dec. 24 linked burglaries at Webb’s to a rash of car thefts on Dec. 17-18 in Bangor when they announced the arrest of a 16-year-old transient the previous day.

Police Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a press release that the same juvenile responsible for the theft of five cars the week before Christmas also was being investigated for breaking into Webb’s in the previous few weeks. Efforts to reach Edwards on Friday were unsuccessful.

James Aucoin, an assistant district attorney for Penobscot County who handles juvenile prosecutions, declined Friday to say whether Raines or Tirrell was the juvenile referred to in the press release issued by Bangor police.

Adults and juveniles who take cars without the intent of keeping them, as appeared to be the case in the Dec. 17-18 incidents, are charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor, according to Aucoin. To be charged with a felony, a person taking a car without the owner’s permission would have to keep it for a long period of time or take it out of state.

The names of juveniles facing criminal charges are not available to the public until after they have been charged in District Court with felonies. Cases in which juveniles are facing misdemeanor charges are sealed.

If a juvenile has been charged with misdemeanors and felonies, only the felonies are available to the public.

Raines and Tirrell are charged with breaking into Webb’s on Nov. 25 and 26. They allegedly caused more than $2,000 in damage when they destroyed some fencing and damaged RVs.

They also allegedly broke into locked RVs. On the first occasion, they are accused of stealing televisions and DVD players from the RVs. The next day, they allegedly took televisions and fire extinguishers.

If convicted, they could be sentenced to remain at the youth center until they turn 21.
