Hancock County Sheriff’s Log Week of Sept. 30

ELLSWORTH — Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff McFarland is investigating an internet scam that a Sedgwick man reported Sept. 20.


A car skidded through an intersection and into a ditch after its driver failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Hinckley Ridge Road and Pleasant Street in Blue Hill Sept. 19, police said.

Damien Towers, 30, of Fairfield was driving a 2005 Saturn Vue north on Hinckley Ridge Road, police said. Towers was not injured, and the vehicle had minor damage.

“Dave’s Towing pulled the vehicle out of the ditch, and it was able to be driven from the scene,” police said.

A car rear-ended a pickup truck that had slowed abruptly on Route 1 in Verona Island Sept. 21, police reported.

Madison Feeley, 17, of Hampden was driving a 2013 Nissan Altima, which struck a 1995 Ford F150 operated by Dale Fuller, 20, of Frankfort, police said. Feeley’s vision was affected by the sun, and she was not able to see the truck’s brake lights, the officer said. Both vehicles sustained damage but were able to be driven from the scene. No one was injured.
