Trooper Patrick Hood received a request for an escort to pick up an all-terrain vehicle in Owls Head. A 35-year-old man wanted to pick up an ATV he bought for his son that was now at a residence in Camden. According to the man, the ATV was not stolen but rather taken to Camden by his son’s friends. The man said the person at the residence would not return it. No escort was granted based on the civil nature of the complaint.

Trooper Quintero responded to the home of a 35-year-old man from South Thomaston who said he received a harassing text message from a 21-year-old woman from Waldoboro. The woman was warned for harassment.

Trooper Hood investigated a suspicious complaint reported by a 72-year-old woman from Owls Head. The woman received a notice in the mail for a survey from Rt. I International about drug/alcohol abuse. The notice advised the resident she would be visited by a representative from the company to discuss the topic. Also in the letter was a statement from Rt. I that the contact person was going to register with either the state police barracks or Rockland police to prove her identity prior to the appointment. Attempts to contact Rt. I to identify the person were unsuccessful; however, the resident was going to alert law enforcement should someone arrive and ask to enter her home without proper identification.
