Three men were arrested Sunday after Maine state troopers caught them dragging a stolen shed down a road with a pickup truck, according to state police.

Police got a phone call about the men stealing the structure from a foreclosed property on Pork Street in Lebanon. The troopers then found the men pulling the 25-foot shed with the truck and blocking off half of nearby Heath Road, police said.

Matthew Thompson, of Lebanon, Timothy James, of Pembroke, New Hampshire, and Robert Breton, of Milton, New Hampshire, were arrested at the scene. Police said Thompson also had crystal meth and prescription pills without a prescription.
