Random stabbings at Bangor mall

BANGOR A Virginia woman was arrested for reportedly stabbing to people at the Bangor Mall seemingly at random.

On June 2, at 11:38 a.m., the Bangor Police Department received the report that a person had been stabbed in the shoulder. Twenty minutes later, another person was stabbed while shopping at J.C. Penney in the mall, also in the shoulder. Both were treated at the hospital and released.

The victims both released a description of a white woman in her 20s wearing a blue shirt and gray skirt. Neither victim knew the woman in question, and the attacks appear to have been random.

Around 2:55 in the afternoon, a detective from the Farmington Police Department called with information, and Bangor detectives went to Farmington and arrested Elizabeth Ellis, 34, and charged her with two counts of aggravated assault, a class B felony.

Ellis was taken to Penobscot County Jail. Police are asking that anyone who was at the Bangor Mall on June 2 between 11 a.m. and 12 noon and may have witnessed these events to call the Bangor Police Department 947-7384.

Man impersonates officer to lecture students

READFIELD Maine State Police have charged a former student of Maranacook High School with impersonating a police officer after he showed a badge and a gun and talked his way into a post-game meeting of the school's boys lacrosse team.

School officials later called state police about the incident, and troopers arrested 19-year-old Caleb Jackson of Wayne and charged him with impersonating a public servant, carrying a concealed weapon and possessing a gun on school property. He was taken to the Kennebec County Jail and is now free on bail.

The incident took place on June 2 on the campus of the Kents Hill School, which is where Maranacook plays their lacrosse games. Both schools are located in Readfield. The coach of the lacrosse team and Maranacook's athletic director had been approached by Jackson, who convinced them he was a State Trooper, and wanted to talk to the team about sexting.

Jackson was allowed to talk to the team. Afterwards school officials called State Police. Trooper Jed Malcore responded to Kents Hill and located Jackson who was still on the school grounds and took him into custody without incident. Trooper Jesse Duda also assisted in the investigation.

The gun Jackson had was in a holster on his belt, hidden under a coat, and was not removed from the holster at any time. There is also no indication that he threatened anyone. Troopers said the gun was loaded when they recovered it from Jackson's car.

Kennebunk fisherman pleads guilty, is sentenced for multiple tax frauds

AUGUSTA Attorney General Janet Mills announced today that Brian Morse, 54, of Kennebunk, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve two years in prison for Failing to File and Pay Maine Income Taxes for 2006 to 2008 and 2010, all Class C offenses. This was Morse's third conviction for violating Maine's income tax laws. He was previously convicted of failing to pay taxes in December 2002 for years 1996 to 2001 and again in March 2007 for years 2002 to 2005. Morse is a commercial fisherman who has a history of failing to file and pay his income taxes going back to the 1980s.

Superior Court Justice John O'Neil sentenced Morse to four years with all but two years suspended, and two years of probation. Morse was also ordered to pay $15,350, which is the amount of remaining restitution of taxes owed. Morse also failed to appear on several dates for which he was summonsed to address the Court not only on the new tax offenses, but on his failure to pay restitution from his previous convictions. Morse had to be arrested a number of times in order to secure his appearance in Court.

'All Mainers must pay their fair share,' said Attorney General Mills. 'My Office will continue to prosecute those who fail to comply with Maine's tax laws. And we will pursue repeat offenders who demonstrate they have not learned that they need to comply with their tax obligations.'

Mr. Morse pled guilty on April 23, 2015 and has been in custody since he was arrested on an outstanding warrant on Jan. 5, 2015. This case was investigated by the Maine Revenue Services' Criminal Investigations Unit. Attorney General Mills praised the efforts of Assistant Attorney General Gregg D. Bernstein who handled this matter for the Attorney General's Criminal Division.

Maine DEA arrests three

-The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency have arrested Jeffrey Aviles, 26 of the Bronx, NY; Alphonso Belnavis, 45, of Waldoboro; and Dean Feltis, 48, of Waldoboro on crack cocaine, heroin and firearm charges.

Aviles was charged with aggravated trafficking in crack cocaine and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. Belbavis was charged with aggravated trafficking in crack cocaine and Feltis was charged with unlawful possession of heroin.

Following leads provided by Rockland Police and Knox County Sheriffs' Office in early April, agents from the MDEA Mid-Coast District Task Force started an investigation into the distribution of crack cocaine and heroin in Lincoln and Knox counties. Agents identified Aviles as traveling from the Bronx, New York to Waldoboro with crack and heroin on a regular basis. The drugs would then be re-packaged and sold to local drug users.

Wednesday evening, police searched the home, occupied by Feltis and Belnavis, in Waldoboro and seized 28 grams of crack cocaine, 1 gram of heroin, an AR15 rifle, 200 rounds of ammunition and $2,500 in cash. The street value of the seized drugs is $3,000.

As police entered the house Wednesday evening, the three men attempted to destroy the drugs and flee the residence out the back door. Feltis was tackled by officers on the back deck and the other two men were taken into custody inside the home. The trio was transported to the Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset. Assisting drug agents with the search and arrests were Waldoboro and State Police, Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and the Maine Warden Service.
