All subjects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Man sought for identification

BANGOR - Police are looking to identify a man who allegedly withdrew money using someone else's credit card.

A 44-year-old Bangor resident reported to police that she lost a bundle of credit cards between her home and downtown Bangor on May 1. However, the resident didn't report the cards stolen for a couple of days in hopes that she had just misplaced them.

But on May 4, one of her cards was used three times for cash withdrawals, two of which successfully went through. Two of those transactions were captured on still photographs from the Court Street Market and an ATM machine in Bangor.

Man arrested following alledged car theft

ORONO - 25-year-old Philip Bowers of Burlington was arraigned in court Monday after being arrested over the weekend and charged with theft, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, misuse of identification and operation after suspension.

Orono police received a report of a stolen vehicle from Stillwater Avenue on April 25. According to Capt. Josh Ewing, the Toyota Yaris owner had left her debit card inside

the car, and it was used in both Bangor and Newport. Photos of the suspect were made public shortly thereafter and authorities were given the name of Philip Bowers.

On April 27, the Yaris was found abandoned near mile marker 224, just below the Lincoln exit, and was returned to the owner. Authorities continued to investigate the theft before eventually putting a case together against Bowers. Over the weekend, authorities located the Burlington resident at Kingman's bar in Old Town, where he was arrested.

Man charged with stealing two cars, crashes both

dylan-colvinBANGOR - An Orrington man is facing a slew of charges after allegedly stealing not one, but two vehicles and damaging both.

Bangor officers received numerous complaints about a silver car passing other vehicles at a high rate of speed near Second Street in Bangor around 10:15 p.m. last Monday night. Moments later the same vehicle was spotted by Officer Russ Twaddell on Union Street. The officer pursued the vehicle as it turned onto Ohio Street and then the I-95S ramp before exiting the interstate and eventually crashing into a utility pole on Sunset Avenue. According to the authorities, the driver then took off on foot, leaving one Nike shoe behind.

Officer Taylor Bagley began searching the area for the suspected driver when dispatch called and said a black Jeep Grand Cherokee had just been reported stolen from Seventeenth Street. Before police could locate it, the vehicle was involved in an accident at the bottom of the Nelson Street hill. Several people stopped to report to authorities that the driver was hiding in the bushes just off the roadway. That's where Bagley located 19- year-old Dylan Colvin lying on the ground with only one Nike sneaker on his right foot.

Colvin was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with two counts of theft, OUI, eluding a police officer, operating under suspension and driving to endanger.

Unwelcomed guest scares Lamoine home owner

LAMOINE - A Lamoine home owner got quite a scare when she looked in her yard last Monday night around 10:24 p.m. The resident called the Hancock County Sheriff's office to report there was a bear damaging her property. The home owner said the bear was afraid of very little and was eating her bird feeders. Since the Warden Service was unavailable, Deputy Shane Campbell responded to scene on Mud Creek Road, but the bear never returned to the residence.

This is the first time the home's owner has had a bear problem. No word on the cost of damages to the bird feeder.
