Two men connected to string of burglaries

PENOBSCOT/PISCATAQUIS COUNTIES Maine State Police, working with the Penobscot Sheriff's Office and Bangor Police, have arrested two men in connection with a burglary spree in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties that began in June. 

Charged with burglary and theft are Paul St. Onge, 43, of Hudson and Eugene Horn, 37, of Bangor. Both were arrested last month and have been held at the Penobscot County Jail in lieu of bail. Troopers began looking at the two following a burglary on Sept. 9 at Harvey RVs on Broadway in Glenburn. As the investigation unfolded, it was discovered the two are believed responsible for upwards of a dozen burglaries into businesses, houses and seasonal properties in the two counties.  

The stolen items included electronics, furniture, jewelry, household appliances, guns and trailers. Some of the property has been recovered and efforts continue to locate remaining items. The two used Horn's red Ford Escape with Maine license plate 7329TN to travel to the burglary sites. Investigators say the two sold much of the property that has not been located. They are asking the public to call the Maine State Police if they suspect they may have purchased some of the stolen items or saw Horn's SUV during the summer. The State Police Orono number is 866-2122.  

The team of investigators who coordinated the case are Troopers Tucker Bonnevie and Jarod Stedman, Penobscot Deputy Detective Robert Jordan and Bangor Police Detective James Carr.

Bangor man charged with robbery

BANGOR Police arrested Bangor man and charged him with robbery for allegedly stealing jewelry from Sears before fleeing from loss prevention on foot.

Chad Beal, 24, of Bangor, stole jewelry from Sears. Loss prevention told officers that he jumped a fence and fled on foot across I-95 towards the Sylvan Road. Officer Taylor Bagley followed Beal's track. Lt. Tom Reagan and Sgt. Catherine Rumsey were in the area and saw Beal entering the Eastern Maine Community College campus. They pursued him on foot when he refused orders to stop.

After a brief foot chase, officers saw Beal reach into a backpack as he turned to face pursuing officers. Fearing the possibility of a weapon, Reagan ordered him to the ground at gunpoint. The suspect dropped the backpack and complied and he was taken into custody.

The stolen jewelry was recovered and a search of the backpack revealed a black BB gun designed to look like a semi-automatic pistol, numerous hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia.

During the investigation, police learned that Beal had reportedly made threats to the loss prevention employees who were pursing, which caused them to stop chasing Beal.

Beal was charged with class B felony robbery and class D illegal possession of hypodermic needles, and police noted he had an active arrest warrant for an unrelated failure to appear. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail.

BANGOR An Orono man was arrested after he reportedly broke into the residence of Stephen and Tabitha King last week.

On Oct. 29, the Bangor Police Department received a report that an unknown man had entered the residence uninvited. When confronted by staff and ordered to leave, a man later identified as Christopher Prince, 29, of Orono, complied. When Officer Taylor Bagley arrived, he located Prince up the street from the house. While trying to speak with him, Prince became uncooperative and combative with officers, according to police. He was arrested and charged with failure to submit to arrest or detention and issued a criminal trespass order for the Kings' property.

The Kings were not at the residence at the time.

Det. Jim Carr retires


BANGOR Detective Jim Carr recently retired from the Bangor Police Department effective Oct. 31. 

Carr graduated high school in 1984 from Mattanawcook Academy, Lincoln. In 1988 he graduated from UMaine Farmington, with a bachelor's degree in elementary education.

Carr was hired in August 1988 at Bangor P.D. and worked in patrol until 1995, which included one year of DARE. He was also a department firearms instructor. He was assigned to MDEA 1995 through 2008 and in 2009 was assigned to the department's Criminal Investigations Division until his retirement.

Carr has no long term or immediate plans in the future, but his colleagues at the Bangor Police Department are certain hunting and fishing will be high on his agenda.

Teen fugitive arrested


BIDDEFORD/HOLLIS/ALTON Maine State Police say a teenager, on the run for several weeks and wanted for a series of burglaries, was arrested in Biddeford on Oct. 31. Michael Clapp, 18, of Sanford, was found hiding inside the house of a friend in Biddeford. He had been sought by state police in connection with burglaries in Hollis and Alton, NH. Three other young men already had been charged with the crimes.

Trooper Jeremy Forbes said troopers worked with the Cumberland Sherriff's Office and Biddeford Police to track Clapp to the house last night and found him hiding in an upstairs closet. Clapp was arrested without incident and taken to the York County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail. Clapp apparently had been staying at an Old Orchard Beach motel for most of the past month. Forbes said troopers were concerned that Clapp might be in possession of a handgun stolen from the burglary of a home in Hollis, but the gun has not been located.

IRS warns of phone scam

WASHINGTON The Internal Revenue Service recently warned consumers about a sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers, including recent immigrants, throughout the country. 

Victims are told that they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver's license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting.

'This scam has hit taxpayers in nearly every state in the country. We want to educate taxpayers so they can help protect themselves. Rest assured, we do not and will not ask for credit card numbers over the phone, nor request a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer,' said IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel. 'If someone unexpectedly calls claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don't pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn't the IRS calling.' Werfel noted that the first IRS contact with taxpayers on a tax issue is likely to occur via mail.

Other characteristics of this scam include:

        Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.

        Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim's Social Security Number.

        Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it's the IRS calling.

        Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.

        Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.

        After threatening victims with jail time or driver's license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, here's what you should do:

If you know you owe taxes or you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 800-829-1040. The IRS employees at that line can help you with a payment issue if there really is such an issue.

If you know you don't owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe any taxes (for example, you've never received a bill or the caller made some bogus threats as described above), then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 800-366-4484.

If you've been targeted by this scam, you should also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their 'FTC Complaint Assistant' at Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.

Taxpayers should be aware that there are other unrelated scams (such as a lottery sweepstakes) and solicitations (such as debt relief) that fraudulently claim to be from the IRS. 

The IRS encourages taxpayers to be vigilant against phone and email scams that use the IRS as a lure. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information.  This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. The IRS also does not ask for PINs, passwords or similar confidential access information for credit card, bank or other financial accounts. Recipients should not open any attachments or click on any links contained in the message. Instead, forward the e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
