BELFAST, Maine — A Brooks man who pleaded guilty to breaking into the Searsport Lions Club hot dog wagon last fall will spend nine months in jail.
Tyson S. Servisky, 28, broke into the wagon, which was parked behind the elementary school in Searsport, on the night of Sept. 17, 2015. The day after the burglary, police learned that a blue cooler, some paper goods and $209.79 worth of food had been stolen from the trailer, according to documents filed at Waldo County Court.
Searsport police Officer Dennis Remillard investigated the break-in and learned that Servisky had been squatting in a tent located just 1,000 feet from the Lions Club hot dog wagon, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. The officer went to the tent site, but the tent and Servisky were gone. About a week later, a Mt. Ephraim Road landowner called police to report that Servisky and a woman were camping on his property and he wanted them gone. This time, responding police found the cooler and some of the food items that had been taken from the Lions Club.
Police charged Servisky and the woman, Sarah Double, 25, of Bangor, in connection with the break-in later that fall. Servisky pleaded guilty this week to burglary, theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and criminal mischief. It was not immediately clear whether Double’s case has been completed.
In addition to serving nine months in jail, Servisky must pay $268.59 in restitution to the Searsport Lions Club.
