One person is facing several charges after reportedly breaking into a Chelsea business and stealing a car that he later crashed.

Travis Arbour, 23, of Windsor, was arrested Tuesday on two warrants and new charges of burglary, theft, leaving the scene of a crash and violating bail conditions, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said in a news release.

The arrest stems from an investigation into a burglary at White’s Auto on Route 17 in Chelsea. The owner, Michael White, called police Tuesday morning after finding his business had been burglarized overnight, McCausland said. White also reported a 2002 Buick had been stolen.

Trooper Klayton Peckham, of the state police, learned the car had crashed earlier in the day on Weeks Mills Road in Windsor near the Caswell Road intersection.

“The vehicle was found crashed in the ditch with no one around,” McCausland said.

The investigation led police to Arbour, whom police later found on Caswell Road, McCausland said. Arbour was arrested without incident.
