Franklin motorcyclist has a bad day on the roads

TRENTON - A Franklin man was taken into custody after leaving the scene of an accident and speeding away from police.

Bar Harbor police contacted state police in Ellsworth on Friday, asking them to look out for a motorcycle that fled the scene of an accident in Bar Harbor. Trooper Greg Roy later spotted the motorcyclist on Route 3 in Trenton. When he attempted to stop the driver, the motorcyclist sped up. After a two mile chase, the bike's operator lost control while attempting to turn onto the Jordan River Road in Trenton, but that didn't keep him from moving. The driver, who was later identified as 24-year-old Brandon Brown, tried to drive away from police again before he was forcefully removed from the motorcycle by Tpr. Roy.

Brown was arrested and charged with eluding an officer, operating under the influence, resisting arrest, criminal speed, driving to endanger, operating an unregistered motor vehicle and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. He was also cited for having no insurance and an expired inspection sticker.

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.

BANGOR - An evening at a local downtown bar in Bangor turned scary for one 33-year-old Bangor man who was reportedly choked and robbed after accepting a ride home from an acquaintance.

The man, who was not identified, told Officer Taylor Bagley that when the bar closed Sunday morning at around 1:15 a.m., he accepted a ride from an acquaintance he knew only as 'Scott.' When he got into the man's silver van, he noticed a younger man and three women already inside the vehicle.

The victim told police the younger man choked him from behind until he lost consciousness. He awoke in the parking lot of Angelo's Pizzeria on Hammond Street as the van took off. The victim eventually flagged down a passing motorist and used her cell phone to call police.

EDITOR'S NOTE: In our story 'Bonfire explosion leads to charges' that appeared in the May 9 edition of The Maine Edge, the second paragraph incorrectly inferred that the 19-year-old Lamoine man, who was not identified and was injured by the resulting explosion, was responsible for throwing gasoline into the fire that caused his injuries. While it was clarified in the following paragraph, where Blake Thomas, 21, of Southwest Harbor was charged by police to have thrown the gasoline that injured the 19-year-old, the previous reference caused undue confusion.

We regret the error.

Florida police nab fled felons

PLYMOUTH Police locate two people on the lam.

Back on Jan. 9, Deputy James Kennedy investigated a burglary on the Lower Detroit Road where four firearms, a hunting bow, hunting knives, ammunition and a tool box were reported stolen.

On Jan. 10, Detective Robert Jordan interviewed Becky Cookson, 37 and Charles Burns, 42, both of Plymouth, and recovered three of the stolen firearms along with other property as a result.

Both Burns and Cookson were indicted in March by a Penobscot County Grand Jury for class B burglary and class B theft. Both felonies and warrants were issued for their arrest, but the pair had fled the state.

On April 13, Burns and Cookson were apprehended by Fort Lauderdale police on those warrants and are currently awaiting extradition back to Maine to face the charges.
