Maine State Police

April 3 – Trooper Levesque assisted the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Department with a complaint involving a Portage man who told his grandson he was looking for a weapon to kill himself. The Deputies and Tr. Levesque responded to his residence and was able to get him to speak with a mental health professional without incident.

April 5 – Cpl. Quint investigated a report of a woman who called her father around 0300 hrs., stated she had cut off three of her fingers and her thumb at an unknown camp in Benedicta and was bleeding profusely. The father told the woman to call 911 so first responders could get her location and help her but she disconnected the call and did not call 911. After searching for the woman the whole shift, Cpl. Quint found that the woman was likely at a residence in Chester and asked that a Deputy from Penobscot County check the residence. She was located, with all of her fingers attached, and arrested on an unrelated warrant.

April 7 – Tr. Levesque conducted a traffic enforcement detail between Presque Isle and Mars Hill on US Highway 1 resulting in several warnings/summonses being issued for a multitude of violations including 2 texting and driving violations and 2 criminal OAS violations.

April 9 – Tr. Levesque assisted Washburn PD with a family fight. The female caller told the dispatcher that nothing physical occurred but she wanted her boyfriend removed due to him being drunk and not leaving her alone. The woman also had a warrant for her arrest. Initially she refused to come out and speak with Tr. Levesque but he was able to convince her to open the door and speak with him. The male could not be removed due to there being no crime with him residing at the apartment and the woman was arrested on the open warrant without incident.

April 10 – Tr. Sucy received information relating to a felon in Oakfield being in possession of a pistol. During the course of his investigation Tr. Sucy learned the gun was likely stolen from residence also in Oakfield in February 2016 (Tr. Stoutamyer’s investigation). Tr. Sucy talked to the man that was supposed to have had the weapon and the man consented to a search of his residence. No firearms were located. Tr. Sucy is following other leads to locate it and the person that stole it from the home.
