Hancock County Sheriff’s log week of Oct. 3

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Dakota Dupuis arrested an Eastbrook man who was reportedly driving while impaired on Austin Road in Hancock Sept. 25.

Dupuis charged Wyatt Boyington-Perdue, 31, with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant and operating beyond license restrictions.

Is someone in the house?

Dupuis and Lt. Tim Cote were called to Sullivan during the early morning hours Sept. 25 to check on a residence that a neighbor thought had been burglarized while the homeowner was out of town.

“Lt. Cote and I made entry into the residence to ensure there was no one inside and found that the residence had not been burglarized and it did not appear anyone had ever entered the residence,” Dupuis said.

A woman asked police to check her residence on Sept. 26 because she thought someone had gone inside while she wasn’t home.

“The house was checked and everything was secure,” said Deputy Zach Allen.


Dupuis summoned James Young, 48, of Hancock on charges of criminal speed and violating conditions of his release Sept. 25. Young allegedly had been traveling 75 miles per hour in a 40-mph zone.


A FedEx truck rolled onto its side after it was struck by a car traveling east on Route 1 while the box truck was attempting to cross Route 1 from Upper Falls Road to Schoolhouse Road in Orland Sept. 25, police said.

Deputy Chris Sargent said Grant Poulin, 21, of Corinth was operating a 2010 FedEx delivery truck, which was struck by a 2005 Subaru Legacy operated by Colleen Higgins, 32, of Orland.

“The collision caused the FedEx vehicle to roll onto its side, resulting in damage to both the driver’s and passenger side,” Sargent said. “The Subaru sustained heavy front-end damage. There were no injuries.”

911 calls

An intoxicated Penobscot woman kept calling 911 on Sept. 25 even though she had no emergency. Dupuis warned the woman she would be charged if she continued to misuse the 911 system. There were no further issues, the deputy said.

Agency assist

Dupuis, Cote, Deputy Dan Harlan and Deputy Jake Day assisted the Maine State Police with an injury crash in Orland Sept. 25.

Deputy Zach Allen and Deputy Jeff McFarland checked on a Sedgwick woman’s well-being at the request of the Maine Department of Health and Human Services Sept. 26.

Drug complications

Dupuis and Harlan went to an Orland residence Sept. 25 to check on a man having “medical complications from smoking marijuana,” Dupuis said. EMS workers evaluated the man.


Deputy Brian Archer spoke to a Blue Hill man who had reported a case of possible fraud on Saturday.
