An Augusta, Maine, man was charged Tuesday with 49 counts of burglary, theft and criminal mischief in connection with several break-ins at self-storage facilities in Augusta, Manchester and Winthrop, Maine.
Lance M. Szady, 22, is also facing charges in connection with a June 13 robbery at a CVS store. He is being held at the Kennebec County jail on $25,000 bail on the robbery charge. He was one of two men charged in connection with the robbery, in which a white male entered the store and showed the pharmacist a note demanding OxyContin.
Kennebec County Superior Court Justice Nancy Mills on Tuesday set Szady's bail $10,000 on the new charges.
The self-storage burglaries were reported over a span of three days in May. The charges include 21 counts connected to the Augusta burglaries, 20 to Winthrop and eight to Manchester. The stolen items included jewelry, checks, golf clubs and a propane stove.
