Wanted man caught, accused of stealing drugs


Someone on Hudson Hill Road in Hudson called the Maine State Police on Friday evening to report a wanted man was riding his bicycle on the roadway, Trooper Chris Cookson said Wednesday.

Cookson said he was nearby and went over and stopped Christopher Beayon, 19, on the outstanding warrant.

“I found some prescription medication on him that didn’t belong to him,” the trooper added.

An investigation revealed that the medication “appeared to be stolen,” Cookson said. “It was his father’s medication.”

Beayon was charged with felony stealing drugs and unlawful possession of drugs, as well as for the outstanding warrant. The warrant was for unpaid fines associated with a prior theft conviction, Cookson said.

Beayon was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and later released, a jail official said. If convicted of the felony stealing drugs charge, Beayon could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)


A Hermon man was arrested early Wednesday after reportedly damaging vehicles belonging to his ex-girlfriend and her boyfriend, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

Dana Harriman, 27, went to Forest Avenue at around 2:40 a.m. and was screaming and banging on his former girlfriend’s apartment door, which resulted in police being called.

He was charged with two counts of criminal mischief for breaking a driver’s side window on his ex’s vehicle and the mirror off her boyfriend’s vehicle, Edwards said.

Harriman, who was visibly intoxicated, also was charged with violating his bail conditions, which bar him from drinking alcohol, the sergeant said. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and released at court, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
