A Lincolnville man was arrested after police said he stole a number of household items, including a large collection of Elvis memorabilia, from his landlord.

On Feb. 17, the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jason Cromeenes, 29, charging him with felony theft.

The sheriff’s office received a complaint from a property owner at 241 Greenacre Road. The woman, who currently lives in Nevada, called to report that she had been advised that the tenant who was renting her property had removed items belonging to her.

The agreement between the tenant and landlord was that all personal and household items belonging to the landlord would be stored in one room of the home and the tenants could use the rest of the house as their rental, according to a press release from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

When questioned, Cromeenes denied taking any property, police said.

Police executed a search warrant on a storage unit rented by Cromeenes at the Beach Road Storage Facility in Lincolnville, where they found several thousand dollars’ worth of property belonging to the homeowner.

In addition to the large collection of Elvis memorabilia, police also seized bureaus, cabinets, an entertainment center, DVDs, chinaware, a stereo and several other household items.

Deputies spent more than six hours conducting the search, according to the press release.
