Man charged with burglary, felony theft
Camden — The suspect in the burglary of a Camden business was apprehended Friday, Sept. 7, in Thomaston, according to Camden Police Detective Curt Andrick.
Brian Burch, 19, of Rockport is charged with felony theft and burglary following a break-in that occurred between Thursday, Sept. 6, and Friday, Sept. 7, at "a Mechanic Street business" that Andrick declined to name.
Andrick said a charge of felony theft denotes a theft exceeding $1,000.
Andrick said Sgt. Tim Hoppe at Thomaston Police Department received a call of an "unrelated nature" the morning of Sept. 7 and arrested Burch in Thomaston on outstanding warrants at that time. A "large amount of cash" was recovered from the suspect, Andrick said. Burch was in custody at Knox County Jail when Andrick arrested him and charged him with felony theft and burglary later the same day.
Andrick said an investigation by Camden Police and Thomaston Police lead to Burch's arrest. Burch was arraigned at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, he pleaded not guilty and has a scheduled jury trial date of Oct. 31, 2012 in Knox County Superior Court. Bail was set at $1,000 on the condition that if Burch is to post bail he may not go to the Knox Mill in Camden.
