A Bangor woman who was involved in a fight at a Hammond Street gathering Thursday was arrested after refusing to calm down, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
Michele Landry, also known as Michele Fournier, 36, was intoxicated when police arrived to investigate the report of a family fight, Edwards said. She had assaulted someone at the gathering and was arrested, he said.
When searched by police, they found a knife concealed in her pants, according to Edwards.
In the car ride to Penobscot County Jail, the officer noticed that she was wiggling around a lot and searched her again and found a plastic bag that tested positive for cocaine.
She was charged with assault, carrying a concealed weapon and unlawful possession of cocaine, a Class B felony. If convicted of the Class B offense, Landry faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
Bangor police are investigating a weekend burglary at an assisted living agency.
Mary Rush of Mert Enterprises Inc. reported that the company’s administrative offices on Bomarc Road were broken into sometime Saturday evening or early Sunday morning. Nine computers were taken, along with a large collection of jugs containing an undetermined amount of change and paper money, Rush said. The collected money was donated largely by staff members and was to be used to purchase new Special Olympics uniforms. Mert provides housing and services to developmentally disabled adults.
In addition, several windows were damaged in a vehicle parked in the Mert Enterprises parking lot.
The incident is under investigation, but Bangor police did not release any details Monday. Rush encouraged anyone with information to contact Mert at 942-4585 or 478-7897. (Eric Russell, BDN)
