State Police, working with the Penobscot Sheriff's Office and Bangor Police, have arrested two men in connection with a burglary spree in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties that began in June. Charged with burglary and theft are Paul St. Onge, 43, of Hudson and Eugene Horn, 37, of Bangor. Both were arrested last month and have been held at the Penobscot County Jail in lieu of bail.  Troopers began looking at the two following a burglary on September 9 at Harvey RVs on Broadway in Glenburn. As the investigation unfolded,  it was discovered the two are believed responsible for upwards of a dozen burglaries into businesses, houses and seasonal properties in the two counties.  The stolen items included electronics, furniture, jewelry, household appliances, guns and trailers.  Some of the property has been recovered and efforts continue to locate remaining items.  The two used Horn's red Ford Escape with Maine license plate 7329TN to travel to the burglary sites.
