Bangor Neighborhood Watch helps nab burglar

Mugshot available

BANGOR  Concerned citizens alerted authorities to an alleged burglar early Monday morning. 

On Sept. 2, shortly after midnight, a concerned citizen called the Bangor Police Department to report that a suspicious man was going through cars as he walked down Parkview Avenue, according to police.

Officer Nick Huggins and Sgt. Dave Bushey located the man, later identified as Ryan Lane, 20, of Bangor, who was carrying plastic bags full of items. Police searched Lane, and one of the nearby residents claimed that some of the property in the bags belonged to him. The victim was able to prove ownership and the items were returned to him on the spot.

The male victim told police that a woman who had called police had posted on the East Side [Neighborhood] Watch Facebook page that she had spotted Lane in her driveway trying to hide under a vehicle.

Another female victim approached police and was able to identify property that belonged to her, which was also returned. During this process, Lane reportedly began to threaten victims. He was separated from them and subsequently arrested and transported to Penobscot County Jail.

Lane was charged with misdemeanor burglary to a motor vehicle, two counts of theft and violation of bail conditions from a previous incident.

Lt. Paul Edwards noted in a press release that this was a case where the citizens in Bangor helped authorities apprehend suspicious persons in their area.

'Thank you to East Side Neighborhood Watch for stepping up,' Edwards said. 'Please, become involved in East and West Side Neighborhood Watch Programs by contacting Community Relations Officer Jason McAmbley at 947-7382.'
