Bucksport Police Log Week of Sept. 16

BUCKSPORT — Car thieves stole a 2017 Nissan Rogue from a Buck Street resident during the overnight hours of Sept. 6. They crashed the vehicle, causing significant damage, and then returned it to the residence for the owner to find when he got up the next morning to go to work, Deputy Police Chief David Winchester reported.

“We have identified several suspects in this case,” Winchester said. “Charges are pending.”


A woman reported Sept. 7 that her car had been broken into and items taken. Officer Gerald Lowe is investigating.
