Old Town robbery arrest

OLD TOWNA suspect in a recent robbery in Old Town has been taken into custody.

Local law enforcement agencies - including the Orono Police Department, Old Town Police Department, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office and federal investigators - have made an arrest related to a recent robbery in Old Town.

Investigators have arrested 42-year-old Richard Moloney of Old Town on a warrant for the robbery that occurred in Old Town back on June 9.

Investigators, working with police throughout the New England area, located Moloney in Portland during the early morning hours of June 15. Moloney was taken into custody without incident.

The investigation remains active. Recent robberies in Orono and Milford continue to be investigated. It should be noted that there is no known threat to the public.

As of press time, no other information had been released.

Milford drug arrest

MILFORD – A local woman has been charged with drug crimes following a months-long investigation.

Maine Drug Enforcement Agents, Penobscot County Sheriff’s Deputies and Old Town Police have charged a Milford woman – 45-year-old Olivia Dunn - with selling heroin and crack cocaine. Dunn was arrested at her home on Henderson Lane in Milford on June 13. She was charged with selling heroin and cocaine base (crack) as the result of a three-month investigation into reported criminal drug activity at her home.

At the time of the arrest, agents found heroin and cash believed to be drug proceeds; this caused them to apply for a search warrant for the home. During the subsequent search, agents and officers seized approximately 30 grams of cocaine base (valued at $5,000), thirty grams of heroin (valued at $7,500) a 9mm pistol and other evidence of drug crimes.  

Dunn is charged with two counts of trafficking and two counts of aggravated trafficking (heroin and cocaine base). She was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and bail has been set at $50,000. This investigation is ongoing and more arrests are probable.

Milo couple busted

YORK – A couple from Milo were arrested for multiple drug offenses when their car was stopped in southern Maine.

State Police have charged the couple – 43-year-old Maureen Clark and 52-year-old Edwin Marrero, both of Milo - after seizing heroin and crack when their vehicle was stopped on the Maine Turnpike late on the night of June 14. The enforcement action came after Troopers stopped the couple’s car in York at around 11 p.m. and a drug dog was brought to the scene.

As a result, 12 grams of crack cocaine and 12 grams of heroin were located. Clark was charged with two counts of Unlawful Trafficking in Scheduled Drugs, while Marrero was charged with Unlawful Possession of Scheduled Drugs as he was in possession of suboxone without a prescription.

Both were summonsed and released from the scene; they now have a future date in a York County courtroom to answer the charges.
