BANGOR, Maine — A habitual traffic offender accused of leading police on a short car chase and two men arrested in Charleston after they were spotted allegedly attempting to burglarize an empty home in Charleston were among more than 40 people indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury.

Jarod Brown, 28, of Bangor was indicted on charges of eluding an officer, aggravated operating after habitual offender revocation, aggravated criminal mischief, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, refusing to submit to arrest and violation of condition of his release.

Brown was arrested last month after Bangor police Officer Steve Pelletier saw him getting behind the wheel of a car near the One Stop on State Street. Brown sped away when the officer tried to pull him over, reportedly reaching speeds of 50 mph as he tried to avoid capture.

Once Brown did stop, he jumped out and took off running, but didn’t place his vehicle in park so it rolled into the police cruiser, denting the passenger-side door.

Justin Dexter, 23, of East Orland and Derek Fortunati, 26, of East Taunton, Mass., were indicted on numerous charges they racked up in late August when a passer-by reportedly saw them entering the basement of an unoccupied rental house in Charleston through a bulkhead door and told police.

Fortunati was apprehended at the scene. He was indicted on charges of burglary, aggravated criminal mischief, criminal mischief, refusing to submit to arrest and two counts of theft.

Dexter, who fled into the nearby woods, was arrested a few hours later at a Charleston mobile home park, where he had been staying. He was indicted on charges of burglary, criminal mischief, refusing to submit to arrest and theft.
