Hancock County Sheriff’s Log week of April 25

ELLSWORTH — A large gathering in Surry April 14 led to charges for three people, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Deputies and the Ellsworth Police Department were called to assist while the Maine State Police conducted an investigation.

Deputy Chris Sargent said the initial report was that a large group of people had assaulted a man, 19, with a shovel.

“It was determined the subject had not been struck with a shovel, though one was involved in the disturbance,” Sargent said.

Police arrested James Freedman, 25, of Gouldsboro on a charge of assault.

Amy Poors, 44, of Hancock was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Police summoned Danny Goodrich, 19, of Surry on a charge of criminal mischief.

Agency assist

Deputy Brian Archer went to the Mountain View School in Sullivan Monday to help with a child who had assaulted staff and was threatening a parent.

“I was able to calm the juvenile down so his parent could transport him to a local hospital for an evaluation,” Archer said.


On Monday, Sargent warned a Bangor girl, 17, to stop harassing a Lamoine man, 37, who reported receiving “unwanted phone contact,” from the girl, the deputy said. The girl was warned not to have further contact with the man.


Deputy Zach Allen is investigating a hit-and-run involving a red 2018 Ford F150 that was struck while parked at Billings Diesel and Marine in Stonington Friday between 7 and 9 a.m. The truck belongs to a Deer Isle man.

Well-being check

Deputy Dakota Dupuis did a well-being check on an Orland resident April 18 after his girlfriend reported not hearing from him when she usually does.

The man “was later located in the woods cutting trees on his property and was all set,” Dupuis said. “He said he would call his girlfriend a short time later.”

Citizen assists

A Bangor man who was at a Stonington residence Sunday called 911 to report he was suicidal and hearing voices, Sargent said.

A deputy found the man, who was transported by Peninsula Ambulance to a hospital for a psychological evaluation. The Maine State Police assisted.

Deputy Travis Frost helped a Stonington resident look for a missing dog on Childs Street in Stonington on Saturday. The dog was not located.

Deputy Jeff McFarland retrieved some old medications from a Sedgwick residence Sunday that the resident wanted to have discarded.

Criminal mischief

Frost is investigating a criminal mischief complaint in Hancock involving damage to a woman’s vehicle that was reported April 18.


Dupuis summoned Lloyd Turner, 68, of Orland on a charge of protection order violation Saturday.

Speeding problem

Dupuis warned a construction business owner Saturday that there had been complaints about his vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed in Lamoine and that if the problem continued, the operators would be cited.


On Saturday, Allen spoke with a Hancock man who reported he had been scammed out of a large sum of money. There was no word on the nature of the scam or the amount lost.
