Three people are charged in connection with an armed robbery at an apartment complex in Orono.

Michael Lynch, 21, of Orono and lark Thomas, 20, of Rockport were arrested around 10:30 Sunday night.

The Orono Police Chief says one person was wearing a mask and dark clothes and went into an apartment at the Orchard Trails Complex Sunday evening and demanded money.

We’re told the people who lived there thought he had a handgun.

One person gave the man cash, and another person in the apartment came out of a bedroom with a rifle.

The robber ran off.

Police followed tracks in the snow and used a K9 unit to find Lynch and Thomas at another apartment in the complex.

Katelyn Heiman, 20, was also arrested and charged with hindering apprehension.

They were all taken to Penobscot County Jail.
