NAPLES — Two men from the Lake Region have been arrested after allegedly using a baseball bat to intimidate the occupant of a residence on Crooked River Way in order to steal prescription drugs from the victim, in a home invasion here, last week.

Deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a home invasion, just before midnight on March 13, where they located a suspect vehicle leaving the area. Deputies stopped the vehicle and arrested one of the occupants, 22-year-old James Michael McCoy of Naples, and charged him with burglary, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and criminal mischief. Further investigation showed the incident was an armed robbery and police subsequently arrested a second suspect, Raymond Miller, 26, of Casco, and charged him with robbery. No injuries were sustained by anyone involved, police said.

Captain Craig Smith of the Sheriff’s Office said further investigation revealed the two alleged suspects targeted the residence to steal prescription narcotics and that one of the suspects allegedly attempted to have the victim believe he was a Cumberland County law enforcement officer. Capt. Smith said a handgun and baseball bat were used in the commission of the alleged crimes, noting that the handgun turned out to be an “authentic looking CO2 pellet/BB gun.”

McCoy and Miller were transported to the Cumberland County Jail in Portland and have since been released on bail.
