This 2010 Ford driven by Craig Beaulieu, 40, of Hampden collided with another vehicle while attempting to make a U-turn on Bucksport Road Monday around 11 a.m. Beaulieu’s car struck a 1999 Saab driven by Shelley Emery, 76, of New Canaan, Conn. No one was injured in the crash. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.

ELLSWORTH — A landlord found an old and apparently unsuccessful marijuana growing operation in a Water Street apartment after the tenants moved out recently.

Lt. Harold Page said four long-dead plants were found.

“I’d say it was something they experimented with and never got far with,” Page said.

Prescription medication bottles and marijuana smoking devices also were found. Police destroyed all the items.
