JAY, Maine (AP) — Police say a Jay woman who reported that three masked men forced their way into her home and set fire to her husband’s pickup truck has stopped cooperating with investigators and hired a lawyer.
The woman told police that three men wearing ski masks barged into the home early Sunday and began gathering items to steal while she was forced to sit and watch.
Police say the men fled when they realized the woman had used a cellphone to call for help. But before they left, they torched the truck.
Chief Larry White Sr. tells the Sun Journal, there are inconsistencies in the woman’s account of events. Her name has not been made public.
White says the investigation by police and the state fire marshal is ongoing.
