Man Accused of Stealing Car and Returning it to Owner, Damaged
A Milo man has been arrested for allegedly stealing a car from a woman in southern Aroostook County and returning it several hours later after doing a few thousand dollars in damage.
Sgt. Matt Cummings of the Aroostook County Sheriff's Office responded to the call in Silver Ridge Township Friday night. During the investigation, Cummings requested a Maine State Police tracking dog to help with the search for the suspect.
According to the Sheriff's Office, the K9 lost the suspect's trail after a distance, but Sgt. Cummings later found him walking on a nearby road.
Twenty-nine-year-old Jordan Allen was charged with stealing the car and unlawful possession of prescription drugs, police say.
Allen was taken to the Aroostook County Jail in Houlton and has since posted bail.
