WATERVILLE — A Winslow man is scheduled to appear in court in November in connection with the burglary and theft of items from Waterville Self Storage on Aviation Way.

Police on Monday summoned Adam Baker, 29, of Halifax Street in Winslow, and charged him with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and burglary, a felony, according to police Sgt. Dan Goss.

Goss said Wednesday that the door to a small storage unit was pushed in and off its rollers, causing about $450 worth of damage, and about $1,500 worth of items stored in the unit were stolen. The burglary was reported earlier Monday, he said.

Goss would not identify the items stolen. He said Baker claims he didn’t take the items that the owner reported missing, the items have not been recovered and police are still investigating the case.

“The person renting the unit allowed another person to store some items in there,” Goss said, adding that those were the items that were stolen.

He said Baker confessed to police Officer Dan Brown that he had broken into the storage unit. Brown is investigating the case.

Aviation Way is off Airport Road, which leads to Robert LaFleur Municipal Airport.

Baker is scheduled to appear Nov. 9 in Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta, according to Goss.

He said the burglary was atypical in that usually someone cuts a lock to get into a unit, but in this case, the door was pushed in and off its rollers.
