ALFRED, Maine - A West Lebanon man has been indicted on felony burglary and misdemeanor theft charges in connection with an alleged March break-in of a Lebanon residence.

Thaddeus W. Barbour, 37, of 284 Prospect Hill Road, was picked up by Milton Police on March 24 after Maine lawmen put out a warrant for his arrest in New Hampshire in connection with a March 19 burglary.

Maine State Trooper James Macdonald said in April that an investigation revealed that Barbour may have broken into the residence after he was denied money by the homeowner, adding that Barbour was suspected of having solicited money from several area residents.

Barbour's record shows previous convictions on burglary and theft charges in 2003.

The street on which the March burglary occurred has not been released.

Macdonald said in April that Barbour had been uncooperative in the investigation.

He is currently being held at the York County Jail on $1,000 cash. A status conference hearing is set for next month.

A Class B felony conviction could result in a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

Barbour is well known in the area of Prospect Hill Road and Champion Street, especially for his efforts to keep the small waterfront park at the bottom of Prospect Hill tidy during summer months.

The indictments were handed down Tuesday and released today.

An indictment is not an indication of guilt, only that enough evidence has been produced to warrant a trial.
