Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Sept. 13

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a small island on Green Lake near Waltham Sunday to check on a woman screaming and standing in the water.

Deputy Travis Frost said the caller tried to get the woman out of the water but she wouldn’t leave.

“Upon arrival, the woman did exit the water and admitted to being under the influence of illegal drugs,” Frost said. “She was escorted back to the mainland and transported by ambulance to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital for further treatment.”
