Gouldsboro Police log week of May 5



SULLIVAN — A 57-year-old Sorrento man was unharmed after a vehicle suddenly drifted into his lane on Route 1, causing him to swerve and land his 2009 GMC Sierra and attached trailer in a roadside ditch, according to Gouldsboro Police Sgt. Adam Brackett.

Midday on April 27, Sgt. Brackett was headed east on Route 1 to begin his work shift. He spotted the truck and trailer in the ditch and stopped to assist. Reporting the accident, Brackett received clearance from Maine State Police to handle the accident outside his jurisdiction. He confirmed the driver was uninjured and the truck and trailer did not sustain any visible damage. DC Towing winched the truck and trailer out of the ditch.

Landlord-tenant issue

The same day, Sgt. Brackett mediated a landlord-tenant issue on the Maxwell Road in Birch Harbor. The tenant had complained of harassing phone calls from the landlord. The officer was able to intervene and mediate the issue.

Stray puppy

On April 30, Brackett responded to a report of a stray puppy in the vicinity of Route 186 in South Gouldsboro. The pup could not be found.

False alarms

Last week, Sgt. Brackett, Officer Landan Scott and Gouldsboro Police Chief Pat McNulty responded to several 911 calls and property alarms going off around town. They all turned out to be false alarms. Multiple properties also were checked by Brackett and Scott.
