Gouldsboro Police log week of May 26

GOULDSBORO — A 53-year-old Steuben resident was uninjured after one of her 2011 Subaru’s front tires blew out Tuesday, May 17, on Route 1 near West Bay Road. The vehicle, which sustained moderate damage to the driver’s side front quarter, was hauled off by Rolfe’s Towing, according to Gouldsboro Police Chief Pat McNulty.

Assault report unfounded

Last Saturday, May 21, Sgt. Adam Brackett, Chief McNulty and Winter Harbor Police Officer Ken Schuurman responded to a report of an alleged assault at a Route 186 residence in South Gouldsboro. A quick investigation determined that no assault had occurred, and that the caller was mistaken.

Also in South Gouldsboro on May 17, Officer Landan Scott responded to a complaint of a large German shepherd wandering in the vicinity of Sea Swept Way. The canine’s owners were located and agreed to keep their pet from wandering at large.

No shooter found

On May 18, both Chief McNulty and Winter Harbor Police Chief Danny Mitchell Jr. responded to a report of gunshots near Wonsqueak Lane in Birch Harbor. The officers were unable to find anyone who had shot off a weapon.

Hound out and about

West Bay village’s wandering hound dog was out and about again on Route 1 near West Bay Road on May 20. Chief McNulty rounded up the canine and took it to Hardy’s House for safekeeping until its owner arrived to take it home.

Stop speeding

Last week, Officer Scott cited or issued warnings to several motorists for driving over the speed limit on Route 186 in Birch Harbor. The officer patrolled the area after multiple complaints were received.
