Fire station vandal arrested in Bangor

BANGOR – A Bangor man has been arrested after breaking a number of windows at a Bangor fire station.

At approximately 1 a.m. on Nov. 15, Bangor Police responded to 289 Main Street (Central Fire Station) because a man – later identified as 55-year-old David Bileau of Bangor – was breaking windows. Upon arrival, the responding officer witnessed Bileau punching out one of the fire station’s garage door windows. Further investigation revealed that six garage door windows had been damaged.

According to reports, Bileau was allegedly belligerent and cursed out the responding officer and a fire fighter who’d stepped outside to help. Bileau was subsequently arrested and charged with criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and violation of conditions of release. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail.

Alcohol was a factor in this crime.

Fugitive arrested in Bangor

BANGOR - A Brewer man has been arrested for aggravated drug trafficking following a traffic stop on Union Street. 

On Nov. 15, Maine State Troopers and Bangor Police Officers stopped a vehicle after identifying Terrence Robinson, 27, a known fugitive wanted in Maine on several drug trafficking charges, getting into the passenger seat.  

Robinson had been on the run after warrants for his arrest were issued in 2016 after he failed to appear in court for Unlawful Trafficking of Scheduled Drugs and Violation of Conditional Release.  

As a result of the investigation, police located 99 grams of suspected heroin/fentanyl mixture and 67 grams of suspected cocaine base on Robinson. Robinson was arrested for Aggravated Drug Trafficking and Violation of Conditional Release and as of press time was being held at the Penobscot County Jail.

Old Town launches pedestrian safety initiative

OLD TOWN - The City of Old Town is launching a new pedestrian safety initiative known as WALK SAFE OLD TOWN.

The program is focused on increasing the visibility of pedestrians that are walking near our roadways. This time of year, many people go to work in the dark, return from work in the dark or both. Most motorists have passed a pedestrian walking in the dark, that they didn’t see until the last minute.

The City of Old Town wants to make a difference and is launching a free safety vest program for pedestrians that are residents of Old Town. Walkers, joggers and bikers can all take advantage of this program.

Any resident of Old Town that would like to have a reflective vest for their personal safety may stop by Old Town City Hall, Monday thru Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and pick up a free vest.

Old Town PD asks that when using these vests you are still very aware of your surroundings; while the vests will dramatically increase your visibility, one must still be mindful of proximity to traffic at all times. Vests are available on a first come, first serve basis and most adult sizes are available.

Emergency LifeFlight landing

PENOBSCOT (AP) — Officials say a LifeFlight helicopter had to make an emergency landing in a field.

LifeFlight officials say the helicopter touched down safely Saturday evening with three crew members and a patient in the town of Penobscot.

An ambulance from Blue Hill brought the patient to a hospital in Bangor. The LifeFlight medical team accompanied the patient.

A statement from Lifeflight said there was a mechanical issue with the main rotor blade while the helicopter was en route to Bangor.

The pilot used night vision goggles to find a suitable landing spot in Penobscot, where the aircraft remained Sunday. No one was injured, and the helicopter was not damaged.

LifeFlight Executive Director Thomas Judge said “safety is always first and foremost.” The patient, who was not identified, is reportedly doing well.

Pot buyer sentenced in Portland

PORTLAND (AP) — A Vermont man who authorities say bought a kilogram of marijuana in Maine to distribute to his friends in Vermont has been sentenced to probation and fined.

The Sun Journal reports that a federal judge sentenced 71-year-old Charles Caliri, of Woodstock, to three years probation and fined him $10,000.

Caliri said he was trying to save money by buying his marijuana in Maine rather than buying it legally in Vermont.

He pleaded guilty in July to possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Caliri was arrested in connection with an investigation into a trafficking organization that grew and distributed large quantities of marijuana under the cover of the Maine’s medical marijuana program.

Caliri told the judge it was “a rude awakening” and that he’s “ashamed” and “humiliated.”
