Man arrested twice for indecent conduct

BANGOR A local transient went to jail twice just over eight hours apart for alleged indecent conduct.

On July 16 around 10:53 p.m., Officer Aaron Brooker was on patrol when he was stopped by a couple who wanted to make a complaint. The man and woman told the officer that they had been walking down the street, holding hands and being affectionate when they noticed a man in the doorway of the Freese's Assisted Living building who was fondling himself. Both the man and woman saw his genitalia and were upset.

Brooker located the man and identified him as Christopher Good, 48, an area transient. He claimed he was just trying to get out of the rain and dry off, and denied masturbating. The male victim identified Good as the man he and his companion saw, according to police.

Officers learned that Good had an unrelated criminal trespass charge not to be near the Freese's building. He was arrested for the trespass and also charged with indecent conduct.

Police were called just before 8 a.m. on July 27 by a woman who also reported Good was masturbating. She told police that she was walking into her office on the Griffin Road when she saw him fondling himself, and he began to masturbate when she made eye contact. When she told him to stop he made a vulgar proposition to her, according to police.

He was arrested and again charged with indecent conduct as well as violation of conditions of release.

Jailed twice in the same day

OLD TOWN A Winterport man went to jail twice in the same day in two unrelated incidents.

On July 15, around 2:54 a.m., Officer James Fearon was on patrol when he saw a vehicle parked near the Perkins Avenue Playground. The playground is posted as closed after 10:30 p.m.

Fearon approached the vehicle and found a man asleep in the driver's seat. He woke the subject and asked for identification, but the man reportedly made a rude comment. Fearon explained that it was illegal for him to be at that location, and the man then identified himself as Adam Browne, 34, of Winterport.

A records check indicated that Browne had an active warrant for unpaid fines. He was arrested on the warrant and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Later that day, at around 4 p.m., Officer Cody Haverly-Johndro was called to Winn Stattion for the report of a family fight. A caller reported a man and a woman arguing near a yellow vehicle that was parked in the middle of the road, before the woman left on foot.

The officer saw a yellow car and asked the driver to pull over. He identified the man as Adam Browne. The investigation indicated that the argument was verbal in nature, but Officer Johndro noted that Browne exhibited signs of intoxication. He administered field sobriety tests and Browne did not pass to the officer's satisfaction. He was placed under arrest and taken back to the Old Town Police Department for an Intoxilyzer test which showed he was over the legal limit.

He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with operating under the influence.

On July 14, police learned that a woman had been following her husband around in her vehicle. When he stopped to get gas at Leadbetter's Super Stop on Outer Hammond Streed, his wife pulled in. When the husband requested she stop following him, she reportedly made threatening moves towards him using her vehicle, and then struck his vehicle with her own, according to police.

Officer Dustin Dow retrieved video surveillance footage from the system at Leadbetter's. He placed the wife under arrest on July 16 and escorted her to Penobscot County Jail. She was charged with class D violation of a protection order, class D domestic violence criminal threatening, class D domestic violence reckless conduct and class D criminal mischief.

The ol' switcheroo

ORLAND An Orland man is facing charges for operating after suspension after he was pulled over.

On July 9, Officer Benjamin Sweeney stopped a vehicle on the Wardwell Road in Orland for an inspection sticker violation. Sweeney noted that a man was driving the car and had a female passenger. When the vehicle pulled over into an abandoned parking lot and came to a stop, the trooper noticed that the driver and passenger were trading places.

The man, later identified as Kody Bunker, 21, of Orland, denied driving. A records check indicated that his license was suspended. He was arrested and transported to Hancock County Jail.

Man wanted in Meth Lab case caught

MERRILL A man wanted for making methamphetamine in the Aroostook County town of Merrill last week has been arrested, along with his girlfriend.

Micah Lawlor, 38, was taken into custody July 15 at a remote camp in Merrill, where he had been hiding since the meth lab was discovered inside his house a few miles away on July 9.

Lawlor was charged with two counts of trafficking methamphetamine, and both he and Jessica Tremblay, 26, of Merrill, are charged with burglary, theft and criminal trespass.

The two were arrested after Maine State Police receive a tip that camps in the area had been broken into. Troopers, game wardens and Aroostook County deputies went to the camp on Clark Road, and found both inside. They surrendered without incident.

Both were taken to the Aroostook County Jail.

MDEA Agents found 24 devices inside Lawlor's house last week where meth was being cooked. Meth is highly addictive and the fumes that result from making the drug can be very flammable and explosive. This is the 15th Meth lab that the state has dismantled this year.
