Houlton woman arrested in connection with burglary, theft
HOULTON, Maine — A Houlton woman accused of stealing two vehicles has been charged with several crimes.
Nicole Hall, 29, was charged with felony burglary, two counts of felony theft by unauthorized use of property, and operating after habitual offender revocation following incidents on Dec. 14.
Houlton Police Chief Tim DeLuca said in a written statement Wednesday that Hall had a confrontation with a homeowner and tried to enter a residence on Wilson Avenue on Dec. 14.
Hall then drove off in a 2005 Ford Explorer that had been parked in the driveway and abandoned it a short distance away, the chief said.
When Officer William Janakis began investigating that theft, he was approached by a resident on neighboring Franklin Street who reported that a 2008 GMC pickup had been stolen from that individual’s yard just moments earlier.
DeLuca said officers located the truck and Hall in nearby Linneus where she was arrested and charged.
