BELFAST — A motor vehicle stop that triggered an arrest and additional investigation has led to multiple drug, motor vehicle and other related charges for a 33-year-old Wiscasset man.

According to a press release issued by Belfast Police Chief Robert Cormier Thursday night, Oct. 27, Hector Bohan was being held in Waldo County Jail pending a court appearance next month.

In response to a complaint at 9:09 p.m. Oct. 4 about a suspicious vehicle (a black Kia Soul), Belfast Police Officer Megan Tribuzio found and stopped the car at the end of Hunt Road. She questioned the driver and released him.

Sometime later, according to the press release, officers learned the driver had given a false name, was violating conditions of release for a previous arrest, and had a suspended driver’s license. At about 10 a.m. the following day, Tribuzio found the same vehicle parked in front of a house on Belmont Avenue.

When she attempted to arrest the driver, he fled on foot into the woods. Tribuzio radioed for assistance and pursued him. According to Chief Cormier, at one point Bohan “threw a large rock” at the officer.

Eventually, the press release said, Bohan was taken into custody with some assistance from other units, and was taken to Waldo County Jail. During the stop, officers also observed “what appeared to be evidence of illegal narcotics and a locked safe in the vehicle, which was seized in order to obtain a search warrant,” Cormier said in the release.

Bohan initially was charged with violating conditions of release, operating after suspension, refusal to submit and assault on an officer.

After obtaining the search warrant, police discovered that the safe contained “a large amount of illegal drugs,” including “over 64 grams of fentanyl, over 45 grams of heroin and 1.23 grams of methamphetamine, all packaged for sale, and a digital scale,” according to the press release.

As a result, police additionally charged Bohan with aggravated furnishing of scheduled drugs (Class B) and unlawful possession of scheduled drugs (Class C). “More charges may be forthcoming,” Cormier said in the press release.

Bohan is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 18.
