Peter McCaffrey (Waldo County Jail)

BELFAST (WGME) -- Police in the mid-coast say the man behind dozens of burglaries is now behind bars.

Bbelfast Police charged Peter McCaffrey with receiving stolen goods and violating his bail after they found thousands of dollars worth of stolen stuff in his home.

Police found everything from kayaks to blenders in the house.

They've starting posting the pictures to social media to get them to their rightful owners.

“We're still in hopes of being able to recover all the items. At this point we've recovered items with an estimated value of $20,000,” Gerry Lincoln, Belfast Police Department, said.

Police say McCaffrey is still a suspect in the burglaries, which have been ongoing in the area since last summer.
