Pelletier knew that Hurd's license was suspended and his girlfriend's license had been revoked. Knowing the pair lived a fair distance away and appearing to be attending the court session without anyone else, he followed them back to a vehicle that was parked a few streets away.

This looks like a good place for a nap

OLD TOWN Police reportedly found a vehicle parked in the middle of Main Street with the driver passed out on the wheel. 

Officer Ryan Fitch was on routine patrol on Feb. 3 around 3 a.m. when he came upon a vehicle that was stopped in the middle of Main Street for no apparent reason. There were no traffic lights or stop signs in the area where the vehicle was stopped. Fitch noted that the headlights and brake lights were on and the car was running. He approached the driver's side and saw a man in the driver's seat with his chin on his chest and apparently passed out. The man's foot was on the brake and that was the only thing preventing the car from moving, as it was running and still in drive.

Police warn of Craig's List scam

BANGOR Bangor police are warning citizens to be alert of a new scam that's been reported on Craig's List.

Officer Jason Stuart reported last week that a person was looking for apartments on Craig's List and found one so she replied to the ad. She received a call back from a number that later appeared to be from Nigeria and as she spoke to the man the price went from first and last month deposit needed, to just one month, then $200 dollars as quickly as she could. She did not make a commitment and called a friend that is a realtor. The friend told her that the house she was looking to rent was his and was listed through a reputable real estate company and that she was nearly scammed.

'From time to time we get complaints similar to this one. Please do not ever make transactions for apartments on the phone unless you are absolutely certain you know who you are dealing with,' said Sgt. Paul Edwards in the emailed release. 'This woman did the right thing by not wiring or charging money to a credit card as several red flags were observed while she spoke to the man from Nigeria. If you see these scams on any website, please report it to them.'
