Three accused robbers arrested

Local authorities say 3 men have been arrested following a series of robberies in the Bangor region. The Penobscot County Sheriff's department and the Maine State Police say the men were arrested Wednesday and charged with carrying out a home invasion in Orrington and for robbing the Check-out market in Glenburn. They're also accused of attempting to rob the Kozy corner store in Orrington. Authorities are not releasing any information about the men at this time, but plan to give more details during a press conference on Friday.            

It all began earlier this month when a 54 year old woman says two men held her at knifepoint while ransacking her home near Center drive. They fled after stealing some items and the victim wasn't injured. A short time later police say the same men were about to rob the Kozy corner store, but they were scared away by people who saw them pulling down their masks. The same men are believed to be responsible for the robbery at Check-out market in Glenburn later in the month. In that case, a man who was armed with a knife made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A task force comprised of investigators from the State police and the Penobscot county sheriff's department has been working on the case since the robberies occurred. The members will release more details during a press conference at one oclock on Friday.
