BANGOR — Around 7 a.m. Tuesday, the Bangor Police Department received a call reporting a home invasion on Haywood Street.
The suspect was identified as 33-year-old Lance Bradford, who was found in the basement of the home smoking a cigarette.
Bradford allegedly caused extensive damage to the door of the house, according to Sgt. Wade Betters.
“That man claimed he actually lived in the house and tried to get the homeowner to leave,” Betters said. “Later the suspect claimed he lived in the house 15 to 20 years prior to this incident.”
According to Betters, Bradford is now in custody and will be charged with burglary.
