Gouldsboro Police Log Week of June 4



GOULDSBORO — Prospect Harbor resident Steven Clemmer’s 2016 silver Volvo was unscathed, but his trailered 1999 Stingray boat sustained some damage on May 22 at the intersection of routes 186 and 195, according to police reports.

While he was turning onto Route 186 from the Corea Road, Clemmer’s trailer touched a nearby flagpole, causing the tied-down craft to come loose and partially fall into the road. The boat was removed by tow truck.

No damage was reported to the flagpole, according to responding officer Adam Brackett’s report.

Vehicle lands in ditch

On May 30, Seth Boyer, 18, of Ellsworth and his passenger, Alexander Braley, escaped serious injury after Boyer reportedly lost control of his 2012 Ford Focus on the Summer Harbor Road, causing the vehicle to cross the South Gouldsboro Road and land in a ditch.

Boyer and Braley, who reportedly had non-life-threatening injuries, were transported by ambulance to Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital for treatment and evaluation.

The vehicle had front-end damage, Officer Brackett’s report said.

Disorderly conduct

On May 4, Police Chief John Shively summoned Kathryn Christiansen, 27, of Cherryfield on a disorderly conduct charge arising from a domestic incident that day at a residence in South Gouldsboro.

False plates

On May 13, Officer Eli Brown charged William Brown, 20, of Hancock with attaching false plates on Route 1.

Syringe disposal

On May 12, Chief Shively disposed of two syringes spotted on the ground near the basketball court in Winter Harbor. He removed them after receiving a report from a Gouldsboro resident. The Winter Harbor Police Department did not have an officer on duty at the time.

Drone reported

On May 17, police took a complaint of a drone flying over a residence on Shore Road in South Gouldsboro.

Dog issues

Dogs dominated the Police Department’s May incident log and consumed quite a bit of Shively’s time last month.

The chief transported a dog to Schoodic Animal Clinic after the canine tried to consume a porcupine on May 7.

On May 4, Shively also tried to round up a canine pair running loose near Summer Harbor Road in South Gouldsboro.

On May 12, a dog went missing from a Main Street residence, but was later found.

On May 22, a reported possible drowning turned out to be an alive dog in Grand Marsh Bay. The canine was retrieved.
