Gouldsboro Police Log Week of July 16



GOULDSBORO — Police Chief John Shively charged an 18-year-old Winter Harbor youth with consumption of alcohol by a minor following an alcohol-related boating incident on Jones Pond on July 7.

Gouldsboro police assisted the Maine Warden Service in the watercraft investigation.

Excessive speed

Officer Eli Brown charged Matthew Grant, 32, of Skowhegan with speed in excess of 30 miles per hour on Newman Street on July 1.

Flying Red Bull cans

A July 7 report of a truck driver throwing Red Bull cans at passing motorists on Route 1 in Sullivan proved to be incorrect.

In Gouldsboro, Officer Eli Brown caught up with the driver and determined that the flying cans were empties that blew out of the truck’s rear.

Brown cautioned the driver about the dangers of cans going airborne and the operator said he would not store them that way anymore.

Trespassing alleged

A trespassing complaint on Old County Road remains under investigation following a July 4 incident. Shively is handling the complaint, which was received July 6.

Craft recovered

A kayak found along the shore of Sand Piper Lane on July 4 was restored to the owner that same day. Shively took the report.

Sick raccoon

On July 4, a sick raccoon was put down and disposed of after Shively, who also serves as the town’s animal control officer, responded to the complaint and conferred with the Maine Warden Service.
