BLUE HILL — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office handled a weather-related crash last week.
A sport utility vehicle slid off the road and went into the woods after a motorist lost control due to snow-covered roads on Upper Dedham Road in Dedham April 6, Deputy Dana Austin reported.
Thomas Rockwell, 30, of Dedham was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer, which sustained an estimated $2,000 in damage, Austin said. Rockwell was not injured.
A Blue Hill woman called police to report a scam involving an online marketplace. The woman sent $2,500 worth of gift cards for a camper she never received, Deputy Jake Day reported.
Deputy Rob Morang was sent to check on a report of three people clamming without a license on Swan’s Island Monday.
“Upon my arrival, three suspects fled,” Morang said. The Maine Marine Patrol has helped identify the suspects and charges are pending, Morang said.
Austin summoned a Brooklin man as a result of investigating a motor vehicle crash in Brooklin Saturday. Austin charged Ronald Grant, 53, with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant.
