On the night of Friday, April 26, Sgt. Tim Hoppe arrested three men for operating under the influence. Strangely, all three had, at one time, driven the same vehicle, he said.

Hoppe determined all three men had been driving after watching video footage from the Thomaston Lil' Mart's cameras.

A call was placed to police after one of the men, Lucas J. Fisher, 29, of Wilton, backed into another car in the store's parking lot. Fisher was convicted of habitual offender suspension for a former OUI charge.

When Hoppe arrived at the scene, another man, Allen A. Buzzell, 24, of Livermore, was in the driver's seat of the sport utility vehicle, which had the engine running.

From the surveillance video, a third man, the half-brother of Fisher, Darren Joseph Lovejoy, 25, of Jay, was behind the wheel when the trio first arrived.  Lovejoy was also summoned for a suspended license.

Thomaston Police Officer Michael Blais, along with Rockland Police Officer Andy Crook, and Knox County Sheriff deputies Nathaniel Jack and James Moore responded to assist.
