Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of June 6

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating an incident Saturday in which a bullet entered a Lamoine residence.

“It was determined that a bullet had, in fact, entered the residence through a second-story bathroom, ricocheted off a wall and came to rest on a bathroom vanity,” said Deputy Chris Sargent.

No one was injured.

Disorderly conduct

The operator of a speeding vehicle who eluded police by running into a Surry residence Saturday has not been identified. However, deputies arrested one man at the residence who allegedly threatened police.

The incident began Saturday at 1:21 a.m. when Deputy Jeff McFarland turned his cruiser around to stop a vehicle speeding on the Ellsworth Road in Surry.

McFarland lost sight of the vehicle but Lt. Corey Bagley caught sight of the vehicle just as it pulled off a side road and then into a driveway.

“We went to the residence and attempted to identify the operator, who fled into the residence,” McFarland said. “We were met with opposition by the homeowners, who refused to let us in or have the driver come out.

“During our interaction with the occupants of the house, Nicholas Goodrich, 19, became very aggressive toward Lt. Bagley and started approaching him while threatening him with physical harm. Lt. Bagley and I restrained Nicholas, secured him in hand restraints and placed him under arrest for disorderly conduct.”

The Ellsworth Police Department assisted with the incident and also drove Goodrich to the Hancock County Jail.

Trespassing joke

Deputy Dakota Dupuis took a complaint that two men were trespassing on another man’s property in Hancock May 29.

“Upon arriving on scene, it was determined that the males were never actually there and that they had relayed that they were to the homeowner to get a reaction out of him,” Dupuis said. “This is an ongoing issue between both parties.”

Agency assist

Deputy Zach Allen assisted the Maine State Police Saturday with an out of control man who was in crisis.

The man was eventually detained and was transported to the hospital by the trooper.

Civil problem

An Otis camp owner called police Sunday to report people at the camp who did not belong there.

“It was found the occupants were family members who are in dispute of ownership of the camp,” said Deputy Luke Gross. “No law enforcement action was taken.”


Sargent summoned Casey Spofford, 37, of Stonington on a charge of operating after suspension Sunday on North Main Street in Stonington.
