Nabbed burglar

10/28 at 5:07 p.m. Police responded to the burglary of an Oak Grove Avenue residence after the owners returned home to find someone had broken a window and taken a laptop computer, several pieces of jewelry and other items. Another Oak Grove Avenue resident also reported that several cars were broken into and items stolen. Following a lead from one of the victims, police arrested Joshua Amaral, 28, of Lewiston. Amaral and a female who has lived in Bath, 25-year-old Amanda Mitchell, had taken a taxi to a Brunswick hotel, and the taxi driver said the couple gave him a piece of jewelry as collateral, according to police. Officers matched it with jewelry taken from the home, and with Brunswick police assisting, found the couple at the America’s Inn on Pleasant Street. After other stolen items were found in the couple’s hotel room, linking Amaral to the residence and car break-ins, he was arrested on a charge of burglary and on two outstanding warrants. The district attorney’s office later added charges of Class C theft and violation of conditions of release. Mitchell was arrested Oct. 29 at 7:19 p.m. on two warrants, and issued a summons on a charge of possession of stolen property, in connection with the burglary.
