HOULTON — The Maine State Police Troop F Barracks responded to the 155 calls for service from Monday, June 6 to Sunday, June 12. The following is a collection of the more noteworthy calls.


Monday, June 6

After the troopers interviewed those involved, they arrested a 32-year-old man for aggravated assault and criminal mischief.

– Troopers Endre and Bell responded to Stacyville for a 54-year-old woman reporting that her 59-year-old boyfriend had assaulted her the night before and that morning. Trooper Endre interviewed the victim and determined that an assault had taken place. The male suspect eventually met the troopers at his residence in Stacyville and was arrested for felony level domestic violence assault. The felony level was due to prior domestic violence convictions. Trooper Fiske assisted in the investigation.

– Trooper Pescitelli received a call from Presque Isle Police Department requesting assistance in searching for a male subject, who lives in Mars Hill, who was wanted on a domestic violence assault charge. Trooper Pescitelli went to the subject’s residence, located the subject, arrested him, and transported him to Presque Isle Police Department.

– Trooper Casavant investigated a property damage crash in Hodgdon. As a result of the investigation he summoned an 18-year-old Linneus man for operating without a license for only having a permit and operating beyond the restrictions of the permit. The young couple claimed to have a medical emergency, but the facts did not support their story.

– Cpl. Michaud began investigating a theft in Mapleton where a home care provider was suspected of stealing money from an elderly patient. The case remains under investigation.


Wednesday, June 8

– Trooper Luce investigated an unauthorized use of a debit card that was lost in Wallagrass. The 19-year-old suspect found the card and proceeded to use it at three separate stores in the Fort Kent area. Trooper Luce went to the businesses where the card was used, obtained evidence, and issued the suspect a criminal summons for the violations.

– Trooper Curtin began investigating a shoplifting complaint from Coffin’s General Store in Portage. The owner had a plate number and name of the offender. The 20-year-old suspect from Westbrook was located and returned the property so the store owner decided he didn’t want to press charges any longer.

– Trooper Saucier investigated a theft of services after a report by Emera that one of their customers was bypassing the meter box. As a result of the investigation a 28-year-old Island Falls woman was charged with the theft.

– Troopers Saucier and Endre responded to Patten for a report of two men fighting. Upon arrival one of the men had left and he learned the altercation was due to an earlier dispute between the male and his girlfriend. The male involved in the fight did not want to cooperate with troopers and threatened to finish it when the male returned for the way he was treating his girlfriend. No crime was alleged by the girlfriend just verbal abuse. The male eventually returned and was still confrontational and yelling at the girlfriend. Troopers stood by while the parties got belongings and separated. The female has since gotten a protection order which has been served.


Saturday, June 11

– A woman from Biddeford called the State Police reporting her mother, age 77 who has dementia, left a camp they were staying at in Monticello sometime in the night, in a Toyota Highlander. The woman stated her mother believes she is still in the area and may be trying to drive home. Cpl. Quint took all of the woman’s information and asked the dispatcher to put the information into the State computer system alerting all law enforcement agencies of the missing woman. A couple hours later a Lincoln Police Officer was called to the local Wal-Mart for a woman who was acting confused.

Arrangements were made for the officer to stay with the woman and the family until the family could get to her from Monticello.
