An Arrest Has Finally Been Made in Lincoln, Maine Burglary Ring

There have recently been a number of burglaries in Lincoln, ME. In fact, since July there have been about 35 break ins at local businesses in Katahdin and the Lincoln Lakes region and police are slow making arrests. The latest crime, as the Bangor Daily News reports, involved a break in at a pool hall where the suspects tried to get an ATM machine open in order to steal the cash inside. Though they were not successful, they still caused a lot of property damage.

While this news is concerning, police say that they are collecting a lot of finger prints and DNA evidence but have not made much progress. One reason they give for not catching these thieves faster is that they are bogged down with other crimes like child welfare and domestic violence and those cases are a greater threat to life.

In cases like this where police are desperate to make an arrest. This may be the case for Steve Springer, the man who police arrested after stopping him in the parking lot of a business that was just broken into. Whether Springer is responsible for all of the break ins is yet to be seen, but police are treating him as though he is.

In high profile cases like this, police are pressured to find the suspects. As long as the break ins stop, law enforcement might be happy to charged Springer for all of the burglaries. When he was arrested police say that he had items that were stolen from other businesses on him and they are hoping he will give information about accomplices. This can sometimes be how false arrests happen. The police want to get this taken care of quickly and are looking for a scapegoat. It will be very important for Springer and any other suspect to have a very good lawyer on their side.

So thankful I chose this team to represent me. They’re the best, hands down. Nathan Hitchcock proved my innocence not once but TWICE, including a trial by jury. I have a family in law enforcement who told me “Bill Bly and his team are the best. If I would recommend anyone, it would be them.”
