A Palmyra man whose license was revoked because he had been deemed a habitual offender of Maine’s motor vehicle laws was arrested Friday night in Bangor.

In addition to driving after revocation of his license, Jason M. Colcord, 32, was charged with unlawful possession of the generic form of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax and for three outstanding warrants, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Police had been looking for Colcord because they received a tip that he might be in Bangor. Colcord’s Buick was spotted near the intersection of Patten and Hellier streets about 10:30 p.m. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)


Bangor police arrested a Brewer man on drug and knife charges early Saturday morning after a traffic stop on Odlin Road.

Marvin Lovely, 48, was charged with aggravated trafficking and furnishing of scheduled drugs after police officers found plastic bags containing oxycodone and Suboxone as well as a usable amount of marijuana in his pickup truck, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Lovely was charged with trafficking in dangerous knives because he had a switchblade with him, Edwards said. He said police also seized drug paraphernalia including digital scales and a calculator but had not charged Lovely in connection with those items as of Monday. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)


A local transient was arrested on charges of drinking in public and possession of a usable amount of marijuana after a Bangor police officer reportedly spotted him drinking a beer in Second Street Park.

The arrest of 28-year-old Brian R. Johnson came just days after Bangor police announced that they had posted 21 city parks and play areas as “safe zones,” Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Edwards said that Officer Dan Herrick, who caught Johnson, noted that Johnson was sitting about 30 feet from one of the newly posted signs but told Herrick that he had not seen it. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)
