Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Oct. 14

ELLSWORTH — A person at a Lamoine residence overdosed on Oct. 3 and was revived using Narcan, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office reported. Narcan is a drug that quickly reverses an opioid overdose.

Deputy Brian Archer said after being revived, the person was taken to a local hospital.


Deputy Mariza Gionfriddo handled a harassment complaint between two taxi companies while working a detail at the Hancock County-Bar Harbor Airport Oct. 6.

“I addressed both taxi companies and advised them that any issues with operation of another taxi company needed to be addressed through the airport manager rather than each other,” Gionfriddo said. “Both companies agreed to those terms.”


Two sport utility vehicles collided at the intersection of Narramissic Drive and Route 1 in Orland Oct. 3, police said.

Alona Winters, 35, of Penobscot was driving east on Route 1 in a 2005 Toyota Highlander. She was unable to avoid colliding with a 2015 Ford Edge that pulled out of Narramissic Drive onto Route 1 in front of Winters, Gionfriddo said. James Robertson, 85, of Orland was driving the Ford, which had to be towed due to disabling damage, said Gionfriddo. No one was injured.

Agency assist

Deputy Jeff McFarland reconstructed a fatal motor vehicle crash on Route 3 in Bar Harbor Oct. 10 for the Bar Harbor Police Department.

Unattended death

Deputy Travis Frost went to a Deer Isle residence Oct. 10 for a report of an unattended death. The Deer Isle man, 74, had passed away from natural causes, Frost said, adding, “I was assisted at the scene by the Deer Isle Fire Department and Memorial Ambulance Service.”

Lost iPhone

McFarland checked a Blue Hill business parking lot just after 10 p.m. Oct. 10 for an iPhone that a Deer Isle woman lost earlier in the day but didn’t find it. The tracking device on the phone showed the woman that the phone was located at the store, so she told McFarland she would call the business the next morning when it reopened.


An Orland property owner reported a break-in Oct. 7 to Deputy Marcus Downes. The alleged crime occurred sometime between late September and early October.


Someone slashed a Tremont man’s tires, which he reported Oct. 8. Deputy Kamren Jennings said the incident was documented for future reference.


Jennings summoned Dustin Phippen, 31, of Tremont on a charge of operating after suspension after a traffic stop Oct. 8.

Archer summoned Matthew Flood, 26, of Sullivan on a charge of operating after suspension after an Oct. 8 traffic stop.
