FALMOUTH — A local man has been indicted by a Cumberland County grand jury on multiple theft and burglary charges.
Henry Conley III, 43, was indicted relating to a series of vehicle break-ins along the Brook Road area, according to Police Lt. John Kilbride. Conley faces four Class C theft charges, one Class E criminal trespassing charge, two Class C motor vehicle burglary charges, one Class D motor vehicle burglary charge and one Class D identification misuse charge.
He was also indicted for an incident in Portland and faces Class C theft and Class D identification misuse charges.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt, but a finding that enough evidence exists to prosecute.
Kilbride said the vehicle break-ins occurred over a two-week period, and two vehicles were connected to the indictment. Conley was associated with”criminal activity from fruits of those crimes,” Kilbride said.
Kilbride said the criminal activity was misuse of credit cards, but wouldn’t elaborate on where the credit cards were used or for what they were used.
“He did use credit cards within threshold of committing a crime and we were able to ID him,” Kilbride said.
Conley is no stranger to the Falmouth Police Department. Kilbride said he couldn’t recall exact charges, but said his department had dealt with Conley “on other issues” in the past.
“I can’t recall if we’ve dealt with him on this in the past,” Kilbride said.
Kilbride said this had been an ongoing investigation. If Conley is ultimately found guilty, Kilbride said he could be facing “substantial jail time” for these felonies, depending on how the district attorney chooses to proceed.
According to the district attorney’s office, Conley has an arraignment scheduled for his Falmouth charges on April 8. There was no information available for proceedings in the Portland charges.
Kilbride said Conley only broke into vehicles, and not people’s homes or garages.
Harry Conley III was recently indicted for multiple vehicle thefts and identification misuse in Falmouth and Portland.
