TOWN OF LEWISTON – After being banned from her Sweet Home Road home due to "unfit living conditions," a 65-year-old woman told police that someone entered the residence in her absence and stole her vintage Gibson guitar.
The victim reported that she was banned from the home in October due to what were found to be unsafe living conditions, but had been allowed by building inspectors to return to the residence in order to retrieve her belongings. She said that she last went to the home on Dec. 5 and at that time found the rear door had been left open. Her guitar was missing from a closet inside the residence.
She told police that she suspects SPCA officers may have left the residence unsecured after going through the home as part of an investigation. The value of the stolen guitar was not listed.
