Hancock theft investigated

ELLSWORTH Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Mariza Gionfriddo is investigating a theft in Hancock that was reported June 17.

“I spoke with the complainant, who was able to supply photographs of a suspect,” Gionfriddo said.

Mental health issue

A caretaker for an elderly dementia patient in Stonington June 17 advised police that her client was being aggressive and refused to go to a hospital, said Deputy Zach Allen. “He eventually calmed down and was transported via ambulance,” Allen said.

On Saturday, Deputy Kamren Jennings and Deputy Dakota Dupuis went to a Gouldsboro residence for a woman having a mental health crisis. Jennings said the woman was not a threat to herself or anyone else. “She was voluntarily transported to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for an evaluation,” Jennings said.


Deputy Brian Archer arrested a Franklin man on a charge of assault Sunday. James Patten, 56, allegedly assaulted a Sullivan man, the deputy said. Deputy Hunter Fernald assisted Archer.

Gionfriddo arrested Theresa Graham, 35, of Ellsworth on a probation hold Friday after Graham turned herself in at the Sheriff’s Office lobby.

Deputy Travis Frost arrested Brian Madore, 31, of Trenton on a probation hold after investigating a motor vehicle complaint at the Trenton IGA Marketplace Sunday.

On Monday, Lt. Corey Bagley arrested Victor M. Dorr, 32, of Winter Harbor on a fugitive from justice warrant from Louisiana.

Frost arrested Joshua Hendrixson, 32, of Blue Hill on a warrant Monday.

Domestic problem

Deputy Marcus Downes investigated a report of an ongoing family fight at an Otis residence Monday. No assaults had been committed, Downes said. The Maine State Police assisted.

Disorderly conduct

Deputy Dylan Hall investigated a disorderly conduct complaint on Cranberry Island June 17. Hall said no charges were pursued.

Agency assist

Deputy Jeff McFarland helped Peninsula Ambulance deal with a combative male patient at a group home in Surry on Monday. “I stood by while the ambulance attendants loaded the subject into the ambulance and then left to transport him to the hospital,” McFarland said.

Civil problem

Downes talked with two Dedham residents about a property dispute Saturday. The two were advised the matter was civil in nature.

Noise problem

Frost talked with an Orland resident Sunday about an ongoing early-morning noise issue. The resident thought it was a neighbor, but Frost discovered it was actually “wildlife” causing the noise.
