A Thomaston man was arrested Monday and is a suspect in numerous break-ins and thefts from storage lockers in the Midcoast during the past two years.

Joshua Vandine, 37, was arrested by Maine State Police troopers March 19 in Rockland and charged with burglary and possessing a stolen gun, according to Maine Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland.

Troopers seized enough items from Vandine’s home, vehicle and his own storage locker, to load up two U-Haul trucks. The items include chainsaws, tools, hunting and fishing equipment, coins, antiques, toys, and clothing, according to McCausland.

Police are asking residents of Knox, Waldo, Lincoln, and Sagadahoc counties to check their storage units to see if they are missing any items,

Vandine is suspected in multiple burglaries into storage lockers over the past two years, according to police.  He is suspected of cutting the padlocks from the storage units and then replacing the locks with his own to avoid immediate detection.

Owners who have not checked their own storage units in months could be victims, police said.

Storage unit owners and renters who have discovered they are victims, should call State Police in Augusta, at 624-7076.

Sheriffs' offices from the four counties have been working with state police on the cases.
