BROWNFIELD — Oxford County Sheriff’s Department Deputies are investigating several burglaries that have occurred in homes in the Brownfield area over the last couple of weeks.
On Tuesday, Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Halacy was being tight-lipped about the investigation. “I’m not going to get into specifics because I don’t want to tip off whoever is responsible for this,” he said.
Halacy said the burglaries have occurred in homes on Pig Street, a street of about a half-mile in length, and in other locations in town. He declined to give numbers, dates or describe what, if any, items were taken. He did say the times of the break-ins varied, and in some cases have taken place while their owners were away or on vacation.
Sheriff’s deputies are actively pursuing leads in their investigation, and have interviewed numerous residents in town as they work to zone in on the person or persons responsible for the crimes. Halacy declined to say whether any suspects have been identified.
“It’s an ongoing investigation and we’re very aware of it,” he said.
