Methadone, slightly used

BANGOR Police arrested a Bangor man for allegedly making threats against staff of a local clinic.

On April 11, around 6:30 a.m., officers responded to the Penobscot County Metro Treatment facility on Hogan Road where a man had reportedly threatened staff.

Officer Steve Pelletier learned that Jason Gilbert, 39, of Bangor was told by staff to leave the property. Staff told police that Gilbert had been asked to leave because they learned that the last time he received methadone, he allegedly made himself sick to vomit up the dose he had ingested, to he could give it to another person the previous Saturday.

When confronted by the staff Gilbert made threatening statements. He was arrested and charged with class D terrorizing.

State police solve car break-ins 

EDDINGTON/BRADLEY Police were able to solve a rash of car burglaries in Eddington in Bradley.

On April 1, police investigated a string of car burglaries where at least 10 vehicles were broken into in Eddington and Bradley. The thieves made off with valuables, including an XM radio receiver, 110 electrical adapter, a hydraulic jack, a portable ash tray, a scratch ticket, a purse, money, a Leatherman-style multi-tool and a hunting knife.

As a result of the investigation, troopers arrested James Cook, 18, and a 16-year-old juvenile, both from Bangor and charged them in connection with the burglaries. Additionally police were able to solve six additional burglaries to motor vehicles that hadn't even been reported yet.

Nearly all the property was recovered.
