The Knox County Sheriff’s Office released photographs Sept. 20 of two people suspected of participating in a string of break-ins around the Midcoast.

Arrest warrants have been issued for Patrick Quinn, 36, of Rockport and Summer Ali Ariza, 29, of Rockport for burglaries and theft by unauthorized taking, according to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Other charges are expected to follow, Chief Deputy Tim Carroll said.

The complaint, filed in Knox County Superior Court, states that the pair broke into a home in Washington on June 9 and stole more than $10,000 in silverware and jewelry. The pair are also charged with breaking into a home in Rockland on Sept. 2 and stealing documents or money.

Anyone with information as to the location of Quinn and/or Ali Ariza or with information about the burglaries can call Detective Don Murray at 594-5656.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office and Waldoboro Police Department combined resources and executed five warrants on Sept. 8 and 9 from information obtained regarding the home invasion in Warren last month and multiple burglaries in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties. The search warrants (one in Warren, three in Camden and one in Rockland) yielded further evidence of several burglaries, drug use and trafficking.

The home invasion occurred about 9:30 p.m. Aug. 24 at a residence on Bowden Road, which is located near the Waldoboro town line. Sheriff Donna Dennison said the robbery was drug related. Three people were arrested by the sheriff’s office on that home invasion and were jailed.

Knox County Detective Murray is still sifting through the evidence to determine what other leads can be developed as a result of the new information and items that were obtained as a result of the warrants. Detective Lance Mitchell of Waldoboro Police Department is continuing to follow up on leads developed from the search warrants. Camden and Rockport police departments also assisted in executing the warrants.

Items seized included heroin, bath salts, oxycodone, marijuana, hundreds of hypodermic syringes, scales and other drug paraphernalia. Police also seized $4,000 in cash, several old collectible coins, jewelry, stolen lock boxes and burglar tools.

Some of the information leading to the warrants was a result of a burglary task force formed with Searsport, Camden, Waldoboro, and Lincolnville police departments and the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.
