Falmouth woman indicted for Portland burglaries, more

PORTLAND — A Cumberland County grand jury this month handed up six indictments against a Falmouth woman accused of dozens of crimes in greater Portland and western Maine.

Holly L. Doherty, 47, of Jensen Way, Falmouth, was arrested at Sunday River Ski Resort in Bethel in February for allegedly burglarizing vehicles.

Evidence gathered in that arrest revealed Doherty was allegedly involved in dozens of crimes in Bethel, Newry, Portland, Westbrook, Woodstock and Yarmouth, including credit card theft and thousands of dollars in stolen property, the Sun Journal of Lewiston reported in February.

According to the report, investigators uncovered thousands of dollars in stolen property after executing search warrants on Doherty's vehicle and her home.

According to documents from the Cumberland County district attorney's office, Doherty was indicted this month for six crimes in Portland over a two-month period earlier this year. Indictments are findings that enough evidence exists to prosecute, not findings of guilt.

Doherty was indicted on charges of burglary of a motor vehicle and theft on Jan. 4; impersonating a public servant, forgery, four counts of burglary of a motor vehicle and four counts of theft on Feb. 24, and burglary of a motor vehicle and theft on Feb. 24.

Investigators from the Oxford County Sheriff's Office, the Maine State Police, and the Falmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport and Westbrook police departments collaborated on the case, according to the Sun Journal.
