BETHEL, Maine — The Oxford County Sheriff’s Office is looking for at least three men they believe broke into multiple vehicles from Lovell to Bethel along the Maine State Route 5 corridor. 

Around 5:30 a.m. Monday, the suspects allegedly fired guns at witnesses who saw them steal firearms, wallets, and other property from multiple vehicles.

While no injuries were reported, deputies said gunshots damaged surrounding properties. 

The armed and dangerous suspects are believed to be in a silver mid-size sedan that left the Bethel area and traveled towards New Hampshire that same morning.

The sheriff's office asks anyone with information about these incidents to call the Oxford County Communications Center at 207-743-9554.
