A Litchfield woman and a Millbury, Massachusetts, man were charged with trespassing after state troopers found them in a vacant camp on Pleasant Pond in Litchfield early Sunday morning, Maine State Police said in a news release on the department’s Facebook page.

Police charged 41-year-old Julie Rand and 46-year-old Steven Bonavita with criminal trespass after finding them in the camp around 7 a.m. Sunday.

Rand also was charged with refusing to submit to arrest, police said, because she “fled out the back door carrying her clothes,” while Bonavita “remained in the camp and was cooperative.”

“Rand ignored orders to stop and continued running from the scene,” the department wrote on Facebook. “She was taken to the ground by police and placed in custody, after being allowed to dress.”

Sgt. Chris Rogers and Trooper Klayton Peckham went to the camp shortly after 6:45 a.m., when a man who lived in a neighboring property reported to police that he had seen them enter the camp.

“The caller reported that he had awoken to two people sitting on his front porch,” police said. “The caller told authorities that the couple had since left to access a neighboring camp that was vacant and up for sale, and he observed them removing a window screen to gain entry.”
