OAKLAND, Maine (WABI) - A 14-year-old from Oakland is facing charges for stealing three vehicles and a handgun.

Over the past two weeks, officers received reports of multiple stolen vehicles in Oakland.

No one was around either vehicle when first responders arrived.

During this same time period, a handgun was stolen out of a vehicle in Oakland.

The handgun was recovered Monday by detectives.
