GOULDSBORO — Two Calais residents were charged on April 9 in connection with an apparent trespassing issue last fall.
On Nov. 15 of last year, police were told of suspicious activity at a home on Main Street. The caller told police two people were attempting to gain access to the home with power tools. When officers arrived, they confirmed that the men did not have permission to be on the property.
At the time, they were issued trespassing warnings, according to a police report. Now, after nearly five months, the District Attorney’s Office has decided to press charges.
On April 9, Donald Shain, 70, and Peter Magoon, 49, were both charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass and theft by unauthorized taking.
Pauline Shain, 60, of Calais, already faced the same charges in connection with the incident. She was charged on March 12.
“The [District Attorney’s] office reviewed the case and initially declined to prosecute,” said Gouldsboro Police Chief Tyler Dunbar, explaining the delay in charges. “After further review, they reversed their decision.”
On April 12, Patrick Hall, 29, of Gouldsboro was arrested and charged with violating conditions of release. He was taken into custody following a bail check on West Bay Road. The Maine State Police and Maine Marine Patrol assisted in the arrest.
Kirsten Tenney, 29, of Gouldsboro, was ticketed for speeding for traveling 73 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone on Route 1 April 15.
On April 13, police assisted the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department in searching for a lost child near Flanders Pond Road in Sullivan. The child was later located.
