DAYTON, Maine (AP) - The chief of the Maine State Police says his agency failed to respond the way it should have after receiving a 911 call from a day care center about an intruder.

Workers at the Little Hands, Big Hearts day care say it took more than two hours for a trooper to show up after the Friday call. Col. Robert Williams says an internal inquiry is underway.

Jessica Antoine, a teacher at the facility, says she heard noises coming from the second floor, which was supposed to be empty. She went upstairs to find open cupboards and saw a person run out the door.

Six children were in the building at the time. No one was hurt and nothing was taken.
