The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the public's help in locating Kerston E. Lane, 43, of Brooks. He is also known to have ties to Bangor.

Warrants have been issued for aggravated assault, domestic violence assault, domestic violence terrorizing, obstructing the report of a crime and violation conditions of release.

According to Sheriff's Detective Jordan Tozier, Lane is currently free on pre-conviction bail for domestic violence assault, with priors, related to a case in Penobscot County.

Any information regarding Lane’s whereabouts should be directed to Tozier at Waldo County Sheriff’s Office by calling 338-2040.

Waldo County Sheriff's Office reported four speeding violations, one inspection violation, one inadequate tires violation, one following too closely violation and the following recent activity:

Austin Clements, 23, of Passadumkeag, arrested, charged with possession of methamphetamine with priors.

July 29

Derek M. Poulin, 28, of Fairfield, unlawful sexual contact. According to Sheriff's Office Detective Jordan Tozier, the case stems from a 2016 incident involving a young male relative.

Initially, a call came in for a welfare check and the Sheriff's Office was later asked to investigate.

"One reason it took so long to find (the suspect), he was kind of transient at the time," Tozier said.

The district attorney recommended the charge.

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.
