Dover-Foxcroft Police Department News

You know it's windy when the door to the Police Department opens on its own! These gusts are going to remain with us until later this evening with the wind advisory ending around 6pm. If you notice any downed power lines or trees on the lines give us a call! Be safe out there! ~Elizabeth

From our friends at Piscataquis EMA. Just in case you didn't hear the winds howling, here is some more information for the rest of the day. Subject: High Wind Warning in the North + Wind Advisory Downeast and Coast Update: High Wind Watch has been replaced with a High Wind Warning in the north, and a Wind Advisory has been issued for coastal and interior Downeast. Overview: Strong west winds are expected to develop early Tuesday morning and continue into Tuesday afternoon. Confidence: Highest confidence in seeing the strongest winds is across the higher terrain of far northern Maine. Impacts: Numerous downed tree limbs and power outages will be likely across the north in the Warning area, with scattered power outages in the Advisory region. Unsecured objects will be blown around. Wind: West winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 50 to 60 mph, especially across the higher terrain, north of a Houlton to Greenville line. Elsewhere, across the Upper Penobscot Valley, the greater Bangor region, and Downeast Maine, expect west winds of 15 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 45 mph at times.

Good afternoon! We had someone stop in and report they lost a ring in the vicinity of the laundromat recently. If you found one please give us a call and help us reunite it with it's owner as it has great sentimental value to them. Thanks and have a great day! ~ Elizabeth

****SCAM ALERT**** Good Ol' "Ken" from the Fire Fighters Association, (Generic Apparently) just attempted to contact Chief Reardon via cellular phone. It was quite a sales pitch with the information he was providing. Amazingly, he developed a hearing problem and a connection problem when presented with the fact that he was speaking to a police officer. Any who....."Ken" is calling from 207-313-5995. If you see this number ignore it. "Ken" was unwilling to share his location. As many of you know, our fire fighters do the direct route during their derby and boot drives. (To which we are happy to donate. ) Let us know if there are any other numbers from which "Ken" or any other person is calling with this scam. Be safe out there.

Just a reminder, because it is the season for such shenanigans. (Yes, we did use that word.) We have been called a couple times regarding the removal/damage of political signs. Signs, properly placed and labeled with permission from the land owner should not be removed, especially when they are on private property. To that end, be familiar with the following: Title 23, Section 1917-B (Unlawful Removal of Political Signs). We knew it existed and had to look it up. Anyone else looking forward to the normal ads and no road clutter? We are. Be safe out there.

Come see us on the 27th with your unwanted prescription medications.

Good afternoon Dover-Foxcroft! If you have any decorations at any of the cemeteries in town please remove them prior to Monday October 15th. Cemetery clean up will begin on that day and any non-permanent decorations will be removed. Thanks!

Be mindful of things that could blow around in your yard, and call in downed trees or lines on the roadways. Remember no line is safe to touch - ever! Stay safe!

Rest easy, SUBJECT IN CUSTODY. Nash was taken into custody by a Piscataquis County Deputy this morning at 06:45. Subject was walking on the side of the the Bangor Road toward the facility. He has been transported to the Piscataquis County Jail.

This is the new information provided by state officials earlier today. With that is a boot tread that is possibly being worn by Nash. (Provided he hasn’t changed shoes.) Also an updated picture of what he looked like most recently. A press release document is also attached. Although it doesn’t really say anything thing we didn’t already know. Report thefts, criminal mischief and burglary incidents as soon as they are discovered. This could aid in the capture of the subject and let us know his movements. Further, it is believed by state officials that Nash is in the area and they are considering him as dangerous. DO NOT APPROACH. CONTACT LAW ENFORCEMENT. As before, when we get new information we will keep you updated. Be vigilant and take basic security measures. Chief Reardon

Let’s support our own on this one.

We have received numerous inquiries into the status regarding the search for Nash. When we receive new information from state authorities, we will let you know. They are working hard and have been since Thursday night. We are assisting them as requested. At this point we are asking the public to be vigilant and steadfast. Lock doors and vehicles. Use common sense and basic security measures. Do the little things we sometimes take for granted here. Most of all, realize that there are a whole bunch of people that have been away from their families and working nonstop for days. While we have seen a bunch of experts on our page, criticism at this point means nothing. Offer support. Anything that needs to be fixed will happen in the after action review with DOC officials. To the officers on the hill, stay safe and keep working hard. You will be successful in your mission. Chief Reardon

Significant barn fire on Norton Hill Road. Please stay clear and let the crews work.

For those of you wondering, there is little information to update the situation in Charleston. The officers and other agencies are working hard to resolve this as soon as possible. They are following active leads and information. We are urging vigilance and safety from members of the public. See something, say something. Most of all, understand that officers at the facility are working very very long hours and many since this incident occurred. Like you, they want to be home. As information is available we will post accordingly. Be safe. Chief Reardon

Urgent public safety notice There has been an escape from Mountain View Correctional Facility. The subject escaped this evening. His name is Arnold Freeman Nash. Subject was originally incarcerated for robbery and murder from Hancock County. Subject is described as 5'06", 160 lb, blue eyes, sandy hair, age 65. Subject was last seen wearing blue jeans white T-shirt light blue shirt. DO NOT APPROACH. CONTACT LAW ENFORCEMENT. Chief Reardon

Our glow sticks for trick or treaters came in today! No bubble wrap though. Assorted colors. Free to kids. We have 275 to give out.....make that 274. Chief got to one first.......

When people receive packages in the mail it’s like Christmas. You get two things. One is the package itself. The other is the bubble wrap inside. So when you grab the bubble wrap and discover that it’s pop resistant you ask yourself, “What earthly hell is this?” That is a real look of pain when the chief discovered it. Who invented pop resistant bubble wrap? What were they thinking?

We are still receiving tips. However, we have identified and charged the subject. We are re-sharing to let the public know. Thanks again for your help.

*****UPDATE***** SUBJECT CHARGED Subject was identified and has been charged. Thanks, for the assistance on this one. Our Facebook cyber sleuths are batting like .950 on cases.(It's baseball season, we can do that.) We even recovered some of the merchandise. Well done! You guys kick butt. ******************************************************************************* It’s been a few weeks but we’re calling on our cyber sleuth friends to help us with a case. This subject needs to be identified. Do you know him? He’s not only a fan of the Patriots but also of Natural Light. (We are not judging.) If you know this subject, we would like to speak to him reference an incident at Will’s Shop N Save. A sweatshirt on an 83 degree day? We call that a clue. As usually, no names here, private message us. Thanks in advance, we know you will come through.

Come have a great time with the kids!

We are not meteorologists, but we are guessing there may be some "weather" later. Please call in downed lines and trees. Safest place is inside.

Great article by the Observer crew.

Last night we honored Sgt. Lyford for his valor during a recent critical incident. Attached are a few moments captured during the Select Board meeting. Thanks for your service, Sgt. Lyford.
