Gouldsboro Police log week of June 23

GOULDSBORO — A 41-year-old West Gouldsboro woman was summoned on charges of theft of services and criminal mischief on June 11 after an investigation revealed that she was allegedly pirating electricity from a disconnected line at a nearby residence.

Officer Landan Scott charged Andrea Lagasse after investigating a Versant Power complaint alleging that the Nahum Jones Road resident had damaged another residence’s electric meter and had been receiving power for her own usage. Versant reported that the residence’s line had been disconnected, but a service technician discovered that the meter had been damaged and the power was on.

Dog welfare addressed

On June 7, a West Bay area resident agreed to turn his dog over to The Ark Animal Shelter following another complaint that the black-and tan-hound was roaming at large in the vicinity of Route 1 and West Bay Road.

Responding to the call, Chief Pat McNulty contacted the canine’s owner, who consented to release the dog to The Ark for needed vet treatment, neutering and adoption. The hound has been the subject of repeated calls to police.

West Bay Road speeders

Last week, Officer Landan Scott assisted Winter Harbor Police several times. West Bay Road also was closely monitored for speeding.
