BRUNSWICK — A Brunswick man was apprehended and charged with multiple offenses, including burglary and theft of firearms, following a series of events that began with an interrupted burglary on May 5.

At approximately 5:50 p.m., a citizen reported a suspected burglary at a neighbor’s home on Gurnet Road, near the intersection with Cundy’s Point Road.

The suspect, later identified as Christopher Tucker, 33, fled the scene in a pickup truck toward Harpswell.

Brunswick police officers, recalling a recent arrest involving Tucker for motor vehicle burglary, quickly connected the partial vehicle registration provided by a witness to him.

While patrolling Cundy’s Harbor Road, another officer located Tucker’s vehicle.

As officers approached, Tucker escaped on foot into the nearby woods.

K9 units from both the Brunswick Police Department and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office were deployed to track Tucker.

Concurrently, an alarm was triggered at a nearby residence, where officers observed Tucker attempting to break in.

He was found shortly afterward and taken into custody without further incident.

Following his arrest, Tucker was medically cleared at Midcoast Hospital and then transported to Cumberland County Jail.

A subsequent search of his truck under warrant led to the recovery of stolen firearms, ammunition, drugs, and other potentially stolen items.

Tucker, a resident of 10 Metcalfe Dr. in Topsham, faces several charges including burglary, theft of a firearm, and possession of methamphetamine.

He was already under six different sets of bail conditions from previous arrests.

The Brunswick Police Department credits the successful resolution of this incident to the collaborative efforts of the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and the vigilant Brunswick and Cundy’s Harbor communities.

Additional charges against Tucker are anticipated as the investigation continues.
