Don't want to go to jail? Don't punch cops

ORONO A Winthrop man is facing charges for allegedly punching an officer in the face last week.

On April 19, officers were dispatched to The Grove to deal with a disorderly complaint about people fighting. Upon their arrival police located Alexander Ingram, 20, of Winthrop, who was bleeding from the nose and was visibly upset and also aggressive, stating he wasn't going to jail, according to police.

While trying to question Ingram about what precipitated the fight, Officer Chase Haass took hold of Ingram's arm to prevent him from walking up the stairs. Police said that Ingram pulled away and then punched Haass in the head. He was then taken to the ground and placed under arrest. He was treated by rescue for the injuries to his face. He was then taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with disorderly conduct and assault.

Bad luck leads to arrest

HERMON A Bangor woman is facing charges when law enforcement learned she had an active warrant.

On April 21, Deputy Michael Parady saw a small silver sedan pulled over on the shoulder of the Newburg road down the road from a residence. He stopped to check on the vehicle and spoke to Amanda Rounds, 27, of Bangor, who said she had dropped a friend off at the residence but wasn't allowed to have contact with a person in the house so she parked down the road.

Parady checked her name and learned there was an active warrant for her arrest, her license was suspended and she was on probation. She was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Meth lab discovered in Standish

STANDISH The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency says a meth lab was discovered over the weekend at a home in Standish and a couple living there was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Agents arrested Timothy Schoubroek, 32, of Standish and Tressa Sprague, 35, of Standish. Both were charged with unlawful trafficking in methamphetamine class B and violation of conditional release.

On April 25, deputies from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department responded to 1 Woodland Avenue in Standish for a family disturbance. While there, deputies obtained information of a suspected meth laboratory at the home.

Members of the MDEA Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team responded to the scene, and a search of the house found evidence of two 'one pot' labs. In addition, two older labs were located discarded along the wood line of the property.

Schoubroek and Sprague, who reside on the first floor of the home, were arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine and violating their conditions of release on a pending theft charge. Both were transported to the Cumberland County Jail.

In addition to the couple charged, five children were living at the home along with the children's grandmother, who owns the split level house. Two of those children, ages 6 and 8, are there because their parents were charged with a meth lab inside their New Sharon home a month ago. Additional charges may be considered for endangering the welfare of a child because of the children living at the house. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services has been contacted and is assisting.

Also assisting in this incident were deputies of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department and the State's Department of Environmental Protection.

This was the 11th methamphetamine laboratory-related incident responded to by MDEA this year.

If you have information about this incident or the illegal sale of drugs in this state, you are urged to contact the MDEA office closest to you or call the MDEA tip-line at 800-452-6457.
