Orono man charged in Hampden stalking case

An Orono man who was arrested in Hampden on Saturday for allegedly stalking a former girlfriend and breaking into her home, pleaded guilty to the crimes in court Monday and was sentenced, Hampden Police Chief Joe Rogers said Tuesday.

Christopher Huggins, 29, broke a window to get into the Main Road South home of the 28-year-old woman, Rogers said.

“She woke up and found him standing there,” he said.

Huggins was charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief and stalking, because “he’s been hanging out in the area,” the police chief said. After court Monday, Huggins stopped by the Hampden Police Department to pick up his cell phone and said he was to report to jail on March 18 to serve his sentence.

“He said he was given 30 days for each charge,” that he’ll serve concurrently, Rogers said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)


Police were called to the skate park in Bangor on Friday evening for a report of disorderly conduct. They ended up arresting a Glenburn man for allegedly carrying a concealed weapon, Sgt. Chip Hodges said Monday.

Dirk Weber, 19, was skateboarding down the middle of the street when officers arrived around 5:50 p.m., and when they stopped to question him they saw him pull out what turned out to be brass knuckles and “throw them under a car in the parking lot,” Hodges said.

Weber was very confrontational, yelling profanity at Officer Dan Sanborn, who twice gave him a warning to calm down, the sergeant said. Weber did not heed the warnings and “he got louder” and was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
