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.

Law enforcement officials with the Searsport Police Department reported the following activity between June 7 and June 27:

Driver blacks out, crashes car
A Searsport woman reportedly had no major injuries after she blacked out while driving on Route 1 and crashed her vehicle.

According to Police Chief Dick LaHaye, 22-year-old Shaina Harvey was traveling north, toward downtown Searsport, on Route 1 near Moose Point State Park June 23 when she blacked out and went more than 460 feet off the road.

Her vehicle, a 2000 Nissan pickup truck, hit some trees. The vehicle sustained about $5,000 in damage.

Harvey was checked at the scene by members of the Searsport Ambulance service. LaHaye said Harvey had no history of medical issues, and that she did not require any further treatment.

In addition to the Searsport ambulance, personnel from the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office and the Searsport Fire Department also assisted at the scene.

Burglaries are under investigation
LaHaye said police are investigating a string of at least four burglaries in and around the Half Moon Pond area of Searsport.

Parking a problem in one place…
LaHaye said police were still having trouble with people parking on the causeway leading to Sears Island. He said people were not following instructions on the signs there with regard to parking.

…but hopefully not in another
Searsport’s 4th of July fireworks are scheduled to take place Saturday, July 3, at 9 p.m. at Mosman Park. LaHaye said the park itself would be closed to parking, as will Mosman, Water, Howard and Elm streets, starting at 6 p.m. that day. LaHaye said people who have vehicles parked there when the ban goes into effect will be asked to move them. LaHaye recommended that people interested in seeing the fireworks instead park at the Searsport District Middle School/High School complex or at the former SAD 56 superintendent’s office, both on Mortland Road, and walk from there.
