WILTON — Police have recovered all four vehicles stolen in town over the past week and have charged one man in connection with the theft of a pickup truck.

Michael Davis, 20, of New Sharon, was arrested Monday night on two active warrants after a 2000 Chevrolet Sierra that had been reported missing Monday from a residence on Temple Road was found behind the post office in East Wilton by a deputy sheriff from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, according to Wilton Police Chief Heidi Wilcox.

A Maine State Police dog team tracked Davis from the truck to nearby Cemetery Road, where he was found and arrested, Wilcox said Wednesday. Davis was arrested on two warrants for theft and violating conditions of release, according to the Franklin County Jail. He was booked at the jail shortly after 11 p.m. Monday and remained behind bars as of Tuesday afternoon.

Three other vehicles were stolen last week, police said. Two of them, a Honda Civic and a Chevrolet pickup truck, were found last week in North Jay, Wilcox said. A Honda that was reported missing last week was located on Monday on the Temple Road within a half-mile of where the Chevrolet Sierra went missing, Wilcox said.

None of the vehicles had serious damage, Wilcox said. The investigation into the thefts is still open.
