Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Nov. 11

ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office took a complaint about a motorist who confronted another motorist with a shotgun and berated him about his speed in Eastbrook Nov. 2.

Lt. Corey Bagley said a Franklin resident reported the incident, which involved his stepson. The stepson was driving when another motorist cut him off and stopped him in the middle of the road. The driver then exited his vehicle and walked back toward the stepson’s vehicle with a shotgun.

The Franklin resident did not want to pursue charges but did want the shotgun-carrying motorist spoken to about the incident, the lieutenant said.


A motorist was charged after leaving the scene when his car rear-ended another car, which was stopped in traffic on Main Road in Dedham Nov. 3, Deputy Dakota Dupuis reported.

Corey Robbins, 26, of Lamoine was driving south in a 2008 Dodge, which was rear-ended by a 2012 Ford operated by Brian Ouellette, 44, of Milford, Dupuis said.

Ouellette left the scene and was located a short time later. Dupuis summoned Ouellette on charges of operating after revocation, operating without a license and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

No one was injured in the accident, the deputy said.

Citizen assists

Bagley, Deputy Jeff McFarland and Deputy Hunter Fernald checked on a man staying in a tent near a stream in Hancock Nov. 3.

“After speaking with the man, it was determined he was OK and did not need assistance,” Fernald said.

A man asked police to check on a property in Orland Nov. 6 after someone tried to steal a donation box a few days earlier.

Identity theft

A Florida resident reported Nov. 3 that his former roommate may have stolen his identity and used it to register a vehicle here in his name. Bagley is investigating.


A Boston man called Nov. 3 for a well-being check on a friend after getting a photo of his friend standing on the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and allegedly threatening to jump, McFarland said.

The Bucksport Police Department checked the bridge, as did Sgt. Dan Harlan, but no one was located.

“The caller was all set and thanked us for checking,” McFarland said.

Special detail

Fernald sat with a jail inmate who was being treated at Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital Nov. 3.

Domestic incident

A Tremont resident called police Nov. 5 with concerns about a woman dating her son. The woman had made some “concerning statements” during an argument earlier in the evening, police reported.

“Deputy Dan Harlan and I went to the residence and spoke with the caller and the son’s girlfriend to make sure everyone was all set,” Bagley said. “No further action was taken.”
