An arrest or summons does not constitute a finding of guilt. An individual charged with a crime is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at criminal proceedings.

Laura Walker, 26, of Belfast was issued a summons for failure to provide proof of insurance on Atlantic Highway.

Officer Brian Lunt responded to Beach Road for a suspicious caller complaint. A resident had received a message threatening court action for a debt incurred by the resident. Upon investigation Lunt determined the call was not intended for the resident.

Young cautions all residents to be wary of phone callers who represent themselves as a bank or financial institution seeking account numbers, credit card information or Social Security numbers from individuals. In efforts to obtain such information the caller will often alert or suggest there is an error with a bank or checking account or an outstanding debt to a nonexistent account. Unless you are absolutely sure you are speaking with an authorized individual from your bank, hang up and contact the bank itself.
