Hancock County Sheriff’s log week of Oct. 17

ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office investigated a Castine woman’s complaint about a man who claimed to work for a cable and internet provider wanting to gain entry to her house Oct. 9.

The woman advised Deputy Jeff McFarland that the man was not in a company vehicle and “his story did not add up.”

“She refused to let him in and he left in a tan-colored sport utility vehicle,” McFarland said. “I responded to the area and looked for the vehicle but I was not able to locate it.”

Mental health issues

Deputy Zach Allen was asked to check on the well-being of a Surry woman Oct 9.

“After responding, the woman was in fact having suicidal ideations and had taken a number of medications mixed with alcohol,” Allen said. She was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated.

An Orland woman called police Oct. 6 with concerns about a friend contemplating suicide. The friend, a Bucksport man, voluntarily went to a hospital for an evaluation, Deputy Dan Harlan said.

Relationship problems

An Ellsworth man alleged that his ex-girlfriend nearly ran him off the road Oct. 6 in Hancock, police said. Deputy Christopher Sargent warned the woman not to have any further contact with her ex.


A pickup truck was damaged after it was struck on the passenger side by an International dump truck entering traffic on the Blue Hill Road in Surry Oct. 10, Deputy Travis Frost reported.

Leslie Glass, 43, of Ellsworth was operating a 2014 Dodge Ram, which was struck a 2006 dump truck driven by Theodore Hamilton, 66, of Ellsworth, the deputy said.

The dump truck sustained front-end damage but was able to be driven from the scene, Frost said. Auto Buff Towing removed Glass’s truck. Both motorists had been wearing seat belts.

Glass was transported to Blue Hill Hospital by Peninsula Ambulance for non-life-threatening injuries, Frost said.

Social media complaint

An Orland resident advised police about an inappropriate message via a social media site on Oct. 4. Deputy Luke Gross told the caller to contact the site’s complaint department.
