Brett A. Collamore, 18, of Appleton, theft, burglary.

According to Chief Deputy Jason Trundy, a sheriff's deputy was investigating a reported burglary of alcohol and cigarettes from Lincolnville General Store Dec. 8 when he noticed a stopped car at a nearby intersection. He questioned the driver and was pointed to another source who then "called some people" to spread the word of the incident. Winter and Collamore subsequently called police and arranged to return the stolen goods after learning that they were suspects in the burglary, Trundy said.

Aug. 27

Cody J. Lewis, 19, of Freedom, reckless conduct with a firearm.

Jason Bates, 22, of Islesboro, reckless conduct with a firearm.

Anthony Sweetland, 21, of Waldo, reckless conduct with a firearm.

Police responded to a call from a woman in Jackson who had been trying to determine the source of gunshots outside her house. Chief Deputy Jason Trundy said the woman had gone to an upper level balcony when she heard a shot followed by a "thump" behind her. When a deputy arrived, a neighbor noticed the police car and volunteered that three men, Lewis, Bates and Sweetland, were shooting target practice next door. Upon investigating, police found that the men had set their target on a ridge apparently unaware that there was a house beyond the target. Police later searched the woman's house and found that a bullet had hit the dresser in the master bedroom. The Sheriff's Office used the bullet to determine which of the three men had fired the shot, Trundy said, but on the advice of the attorney general's office, all three were charged with the Class C felony.

Readers are reminded that 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.
