PORTLAND — An alleged burglary attempt and a phone call from a teenage girl who was hiding at home has led to indictments of two men on multiple charges.
A Cumberland County grand jury on June 5 handed up indictments on charges of Class B burglary and theft, Class D criminal mischief, Class E theft, and violating conditions of release against Kevin McCarron, 22, and Tyler Dias, 21.
Portland Police Lt. James Sweatt said the men allegedly climbed a ladder April 7 to get into a house while the girl was at home. She hid in a closet and called her mother, who then called police.
Dias and McCarron were found in the basement after the girl was taken to safety, Sweatt said.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt or innocence. It is a determination enough evidence exists to prosecute.
