May 23 (UPI) -- Authorities in Maine said three men were arrested after being caught in the act of using a pickup truck to drag a stolen 25-foot shed down a road.

Maine State Police said troopers responded Sunday to a report of a pickup truck being used to drag the large shed, which was not on any kind of trailer, down a road in Lebanon.


Troopers arrived to find the shed still being dragged and blocking half the road.

Police arrested suspects Matthew Thompson, Timothy James and Robert Breton after verifying that the shed had been stolen from a foreclosed property.

All three men were charged with theft by unauthorized taking, with further charges expected to be filed later, police said. The men were each held in lieu of $5,000 bail.
