Detectives at the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office are investigating six break-ins in Winterport and Unity, all reported to police Aug. 17.

Three businesses in Winterport were targeted, as well as three residential burglaries in Unity.

An attempted break-in was reported at Rosie’s Diner on Main Street, according to Chief Deputy Bob Keating of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office. Someone had attempted to force a back door open, he said.

A computer and several thousand dollars’ worth of tools were reported missing from Forrest Auto Body on North Main Street. Entry to the shop was gained by forcing a back door open.

Rivertown Car Wash on Main Street was also the target of a burglary. Money was stolen from a change dispenser.

It was reported to police that a Waterville Road home in Unity was entered and when the homeowner returned they discovered a safe and a 9mm handgun missing and the home had been “rifled” through, Keating said.

The back door of a home on Thorndike Road had been forced open and the homeowner reported a jewelry box moved and gone through as well as closet doors and drawers opened. A laptop computer and digital camera were reported missing, the chief deputy said.

A homeowner on Town Farm Road in Unity also reported a flat-screen television and a 40-gallon aquarium with a snake in it missing, Keating said.

The cases remain under investigation by the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.
