A Jay man was arrested Friday after police charged him with entering a Sugarloaf area home while intoxicated, locking the door behind him and falling asleep on the bed.

Carrabassett Valley Police Chief Mark Lopez said police were checking in on a burglar alarm at a seasonal home on Route 27 and found the front door had been forced open.

Lopez said the door led to a mudroom, but an interior door that led to the main home was locked and there was a backpack on the porch. A state trooped was called to help the officer and the two found Kevin Heikkinen, 26, asleep on the bed.

“There were able to wake the guy up, who was on a bed. Investigation revealed he didn’t know anyone who lived at the home,” he said. “We can’t explain why he was over here.”

Lopez said most of the crime the department deals with involves ticket thefts at Sugarloaf and its rare for the department to arrest someone for breaking and entering.

Heikkinen was charged with criminal mischief and criminal trespass and taken to the Franklin County Detention Center.
