AUGUSTA For the month of October, the Maine State Police will display specialized pink license plates on marked cruisers to help raise awareness for cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The plates were purchased by the Maine State Police Trooper's Association and will later be auctioned off as collector's items by the Maine Cancer Foundation, with the proceeds benefiting three Maine cancer groups.

'The State Police is pleased to participate in this effort to honor the many lives lost each year and to promote the importance of early detection,' said Colonel Robert Williams in a media release. 'We all know someone that has been affected by breast cancer. The State Police is no different. We have had co-workers, family members and friends all stricken with this devastating disease. Last year the Maine State Troopers Association came forward with a project to help those affected by breast cancer. When they approached me with what they had in mind, I could not have agreed more. The project will run throughout the month of October, which is also National Breast Cancer Awareness month.'

Your ID says you're 20

ORONO A 20-year-old man in Orono allegedly tried to buy alcohol with his identification. His not-yet-21-year-old identification.

Officer David Silk was called to the Thriftway where an employee told the officer that Farhani Mohamud, 20, of Lewiston was attempting to purchase alcohol. When asked for his identification, Mohamud provided it, which showed the young man to be, in fact, 20-years-old.

Silk charged the Mohamud with attempting to purchase liquor by a minor.

Men charged in Glenburn RV burglary

GLENBURN An arrest has been made in the burglary of an RV dealership in Glenburn.

On Sept. 9, Troopers Tucker Bonnevie and Jarod Stedman investigated the burglary where at least 15 televisions and radios were taken from an RV dealership in Glenburn.

After developing two suspects and recovering some of the stolen property, Bonnevie arrested Paul St. Onge and Eugene Horn and charged them with burglary and theft.

But I want to be here

ORONO A South Portland man is facing charges for violating his bail.

Sgt. Scott Scripture was observing the Pine Street Parking Lot when he saw an employee of The Roost having a heated discussion with another man. When Scripture stepped out of the car he heard the employee tell the man he could not go back inside, and the man argued about the decision.

The officer contacted both of them, and asked the man trying to enter the restaurant for identification. The man was identified as Brandon Levasseur, 21, of South Portland, and he told the officer that he used to be an employee and should be allowed inside. 

The employee told Scripture that Levasseur had been in an area reserved for limited employee use. When he was found in there he was escorted outside and informed he could not return.

While speaking with Levasseur, Scripture noted signs of intoxication, including the odor of alcohol. A records check indicated that the man had active bail conditions, including not to possess or consume alcohol and to submit to testing without probable cause. He placed under arrest was taken back to the Orono Police Department for an Intoxilyzer test, which showed him to be intoxicated. 

He was also found to be in possession of a dangerous knife. 

He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and charged with violation of conditions of release and possession of dangerous knives.

Here are all the crimes I committed

ORONO A Glenburn woman was summoned after she informed police of all her moving violations before they asked her anything.

On Sept. 28, around 10:56 a.m., officers responded to the new traffic rotary that connects Stillwater and Forest Avenue for an accident. When they arrived, they learned that one driver had been waiting to enter the rotary when another vehicle struck the first, doing minor damage.

The driver of the other vehicle was identified as Barbara Hustus, 37, of Glenburn. Hustus reportedly walked up to officers and explained, unasked, that her dog jumped into her lap and she struck the trailer trying to remove the canine. She also volunteered that she did not have an active license, since it was under suspension, nor did she have a registered car or insurance. As a result of the conversation, Hustus was charged with operating after suspension, attaching false plates (the plates belonged to her old vehicle) and failure to provide proof of insurance.
