Suspected Meth Dealer Investigated for Burglaries 

Police in Holden say a suspected meth dealer may be connected to a string of other crimes.

According to investigators, Jesse Sawyer, 31, of Linneus is suspected as having played a role in five burglaries.

He hasn’t been charged with anything yet, but they tell us his wallet was found at the scene of a home break in along Brewer Lake Rd.

The incident was reported on Saturday, but police believe the break-in may have happened on Wednesday night.

They believe he broke into other nearby homes, as well as two businesses along route 1A.

He and three others were arrested in Ellsworth on drug trafficking charges last week.

He’s being held at the Hancock county jail on $1,000 bail.
