Gouldsboro Police Log Week of Sept. 24

GOULDSBORO — Jeffrey Lynn, 38, of Gouldsboro was charged with leaving the scene of a property damage accident and two other charges on Sept. 4 on the Guzzle Road.

While patrolling that road, Officer Adam Brackett had spotted signs of a recent car crash. Witness reports and evidence led him to Lynn’s residence, where the suspected vehicle was found covered up. Lynn also was charged with failure to report an accident by quickest means and failure to produce the vehicle at the accident scene, according to reports.


Michael Daniels, 29, of Gouldsboro was arrested by Brackett on Class D assault and Class C domestic violence assault charges following a Sept. 12 incident at a South Gouldsboro residence. Winter Harbor Police assisted at the scene.

Brackett arrested Brian Middaugh, 58, of Winter Harbor on an operating under the influence charge on Sept. 18. Police had come upon Middaugh’s 1949 Willys-Overland Jeepster off the Frazer Point Road in Winter Harbor.

Non-emergency calls

On Sept. 4, a 5-year-old boy called 911 five times, saying his house was on fire on Taunton Drive in Sullivan. The call prompted Brackett to assist Maine State Police in their response to the unfounded calls. Throughout September, Gouldsboro police responded to nearly a dozen 911 calls that were misdials or non-emergencies.

On Sept. 17, Police Chief John Shively responded to a report of gunshots in the East Schoodic Drive area of Birch Harbor. The chief determined a local resident was sighting a new rifle at a secure range.

A garbage truck’s flashing amber warning lights prompted a local resident earlier this month to complain that the sight of them could cause an epileptic relative to have a seizure. Officer Eli Brown reported the concern to the vehicle’s owner.
