Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Sept. 6

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Water Street in Blue Hill just before 1 p.m. Aug. 28 after a caller reported concern about an intoxicated woman.

Deputy Travis Frost said the woman was taken to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Protection order violation

Deputy Michael Southard is investigating a protection order violation that allegedly occurred in Lamoine Aug. 22.


Lt. Corey Bagley is investigating an Aug. 30 complaint from a concerned citizen about a man suspected of being “unstable” and in possession of several firearms.

“The matter is being looked into further,” Bagley said.

Agency assist

St. Joseph’s Hospital called the Hancock County Regional Communications Center at 4:20 a.m. Saturday to advise that it had a Gouldsboro teen who needed treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and needed a parent’s consent to treat.

The RCC called the young man’s house and got no answer, so Deputy Shane Campbell went to the residence, also to no avail. Campbell left his business card. The young man’s father called back a couple hours later to advise everything had been settled.

Lt. Tim Cote arrested an Amherst man on behalf of the Bangor Police Department Aug. 29. Cote arrested Craig Jones, 52, on a charge of violating conditions of his release.

Cote drove Jones to Brewer, where the Bangor Police took custody of him.

Deputy Dan Harlan assisted the Maine State Police with a suicide at the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Friday.


Frost is investigating a theft of a check in Deer Isle, which was reported Friday.

Bad Check

Deputy Michael Southard is investigating a bad check complaint that was reported in Stonington Saturday.

Blue Hill Fair

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department had perhaps its most peaceable Blue Hill Fair ever.

The department has been handling security at the annual, five-day country fair for many years.

“It was very peaceful,” said Sheriff Scott Kane. “It was one of the most well-mannered groups in all the years I’ve worked over there. It was quiet.”

Citizen assist

On Sunday, a woman was reunited with her handbag, which she had left at the Blue Hill Farmers Market on Saturday. Deputy Jeff McFarland retrieved the purse and delivered it to the woman.

Community outreach

Frost and his police dog, Finn, as well as Ellsworth Police Sgt. Shawn Willey and his police dog, Chase, presented a demonstration at the Blue Hill Fair Saturday.
