2016 Crimees

Writing the police beat is always a mixed bag of sadness, absurdity and humor. At the end of the year, we take a look back and pull from the files the best of the worst. We skip over the grim stories and try to find the ones that made us shake our heads or laugh. Names and dates have been removed to let people get on with their lives. And though we will never rise to the heights of hilarity that have graced the Bangor Police Department due to the tender ministrations of Sgt. Tim Cotton, we will always try.

What follows are our 2016 Crimees. Stay out of the Police Beat, kids.
