A Hartland man arrested in January by state police on theft charges after neighbors complained that he was stealing property from their yards and porches and trying to resell the items to other people in town was arrested again this week on burglary and theft charges.

Cody Gould, 22, of Brown Road, Hartland, was arrested by state police Cpl. Chris Carr and Troop C Detective Blake Conrad after they investigated several residential burglaries and theft cases in Hartland over the past two months. State police handled several calls reporting Gould going door to door trying to sell tools and other property stolen from residents in town, said Lt. Mark Brooks, commander of Troop C barracks in Skowhegan.

Court records show that Brooks notified Trooper Blake Conrad on Monday after being contacted by the Hartland town manager about Gould soliciting money in Hartland.

Gould was arrested without incident on two separate class C burglary charges along with misdemeanor theft charges and a violation of the conditions of his release after being arrested by state police in early January.

In the January arrest, state police were responding to reports of theft in Hartland in December, when a Husqvarna chain saw and other items allegedly were stolen, according to court documents. The thefts were reported around Dec. 14 and Gould was seen a couple days later at an indoor and outdoor yard sale in Hartland, allegedly trying to sell one of the items, his court files say.

Some of the stolen items were recovered later and returned to the owners.

It was not clear Thursday if Gould is still at the county jail or if he has a lawyer.
