STOCKTON SPRINGS, Maine — The Waldo County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a burglary that occurred on the Pout Town Road overnight Sunday.

The burglary was reported at 3:58 p.m. Monday by a resident who had been away from home since the day before. The man told authorities that when he arrived home he discovered that someone had forced their way into his residence and stole his flat screen television.

“They broke through a back window and rifled the place before leaving with the television,” Lt. Bryant White said Tuesday.

Detective Jason Bosco and Deputy James Greeley were assigned the investigation.
