By Sharon Kiley Mack, BDN Staff

JONESPORT, Maine — Maine State Police, acting on a tip, broke up an underage drinking party over the weekend off Kelley Point Road, charging several teens and one adult with liquor violations.

According to police, Trooper Staci Carpenter received information on the party and found several people leaving the area. Troopers Greg Burns and Mike Southard arrived to provide assistance.

The troopers charged three juveniles — one female and two males, all from Addison — with possession of liquor by a minor.

Burns also charged Casey Pulaski, 18, of Prospect Harbor with possession of liquor by a minor and possession of a usable amount of marijuana.

Southard also stopped a vehicle that was leaving the area at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle failed to stop for the officer until it pulled into a cemetery off Kelley Point Road. The operator, Patrick Foucher, 25, of Jonesport, was summoned for failure to stop.

While at the scene, Southard received information that a teenage male was believed to be suffering from hypothermia on the beach. A 15-year-old was found unconscious under the deck of his residence and was taken to Maine Coast Memorial Hospital in Ellsworth for treatment.

The boy later was summoned for possession of liquor by a minor.

Police said the parents of all of the people involved were notified.
