GOULDSBORO — Police Chief John Shively is investigating an April 29 report that a person listed on the Maine Sex Offender Registry allegedly violated related rules.
Shively is also looking into a report of alleged animal neglect at a Nahum Jones Road residence.
On April 24, Mackenzie Pinkham, 20, of Gouldsboro escaped unscathed from an accident that reportedly occurred after she became distracted by her dog.
The distraction caused Pinkham’s 2017 Subaru Impreza to go off West Bay Road and strike a wooden state road sign. Pinkham regained control of the vehicle, driving it back onto the road, and stopped.
The car, which sustained moderate damage to the left side, was deemed inoperable and towed.
Pinkham was warned for distracted driving by Officer Adam Brackett.
Also on West Bay Road on April 24, Brackett served protection from abuse orders to two residents.
Child abuse report
Officer Eli Brown is investigating an April 21 report of child abuse, which was filed after he responded to a disagreement between multiple tenants in the same residence.
On April 16, two horses were reported to be at large and enjoying their newfound freedom on the Cranberry Point Road in Corea.
Brackett was ably assisted by a helpful local resident, who lured the “ringleader” with food, put a rope around the horse’s neck and led it back to a gated corral.
On April 6, Ethan Taylor, 28, of Gouldsboro was arrested by Brown on charges of bribery in official matters, criminal threatening and violation of a protection order.
