Police allege former fire captain threw bag of feces on Fort Kent Fire Department driveway

FORT KENT, Maine — Police have charged a former Fort Kent Fire Department captain with littering after he allegedly threw a bag containing dog feces on the fire department driveway.

At about 8:30 p.m. June 27, a caller reported to police seeing someone drive a dark-colored 2005 GMC pick-up truck past the fire station and toss a white plastic bag onto the driveway of the fire station located on Dufour Street. The bag later was determined to contain dog feces.

Sgt. Dalen Boucher of the Fort Kent Police Department investigated and charged Richard Stoliker, 50, of Fort Kent with littering from a motor vehicle.

Stoliker is a former captain with the fire department, but resigned from the position in the spring of 2017.

“This is the second time that Stoliker has been charged with littering onto the property of the fire department,” Fort Kent Police Chief Tom Pelletier said Monday. Police charged Stoliker with littering on fire department property in November 2017 and he paid a $100 fine. The litter was not feces that time.

Stoliker faces a $180 fine in connection with the latest littering charge.

Pelletier said other charges also may be filed against Stoliker in the most recent case, but he would not elaborate.

“Police declined to speculate on the motivation for the incident.”
