BOWDOINHAM — Police continue to look for one of two men who reportedly broke into a Fisher Road home during a series of burglaries that spanned several communities.

Thomas Lemay, 24, of Wales, was arrested May 8 and charged with burglary, Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry said in a news release. Lemay is in custody at the Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset, Merry said.

Police continue to seek Ryan Letourneau, 27, of Lewiston, on a warrant charging him with burglary, Merry said.

Lemay was arrested by police responding to a burglary in progress on Fisher Road around 1:30 p.m. May 8. One of the burglars fled in a white Ford pickup truck when the homeowner returned and surprised the burglar in the driveway, Merry said. Police found the pickup truck on Babes Way and arrested Lemay.

A second burglar, believed to be Letourneau, fled out the back door into the woods, Merry said. An attempt to track the burglar with a police dog was unsuccessful, Merry said.

Lemay and Letourneau are believed to be responsible for burglaries in Auburn, Durham, Lewiston and New Gloucester. Merry said police have recovered many items stolen from various burglaries. He said Lemay and Letourneau targeted homes in secluded areas and forced open back doors to get into the homes.

Merry said the Bowdoinham burglary was the first occasion on which the suspects targeted a Sagadahoc County home.
