2 men arrested in separate incidents at UMaine

Two Bangor men visiting the University of Maine’s student union were arrested on disorderly conduct charges in two separate incidents, university spokesman Joe Carr said on Tuesday.

The first man was arrested Friday night and the second man was arrested early Saturday, he said.

Daniel Mitchell, 45, was acting strangely at around 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Maine Marketplace, a food court at the student union where quite a few students were eating, Carr said.

“Police de-escalated the situation and offered him a ride to Bangor, which he accepted,” he said. “During the ride, he became disorderly and was placed under arrest.”

Mitchell was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to Penobscot County Jail. He later was released, a jail official said.

A custodian at the student union called police just before 7 a.m. Saturday to report a man acting strangely and at the same time, “the person in question called the PD’s dispatcher and made what the dispatcher described as a threatening comment,” Carr said. “Then the fire alarm was pulled.”

Kent Siegfriedt, 58, left the student union before police arrived but called dispatchers again shortly afterward to request a ride to the hospital. Police picked him up near Lord Hall and arrested him on charges of disorderly conduct and making a false public report. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and later released, a jail official said.

A 24-year-old Bangor transient was caught trying to steal razor blades from the Rite Aid on Third Street in Bangor on Monday night and was arrested after police found a bottle of diverted prescription pills on her, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Tuesday.

Kendra Allen was arrested at around 7 p.m. and charged with theft for taking the razor blades, he said. “She was searched and they found a bottle of pills that did not belong to her,” Edwards said.

Allen was charged with unlawful possession of Doxepin, a drug used to treat depression and anxiety. She also was wanted for failing to appear in court to face operating a defective vehicle charge, the sergeant said. She was booked into Penobscot County Jail and remained there Tuesday night, a jail official said.

A 46-year-old transient from the Bangor area who was found at a house on Hammond Street in Bangor on Monday night that he is barred from visiting told police to “take me to jail,” Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Tuesday.

Police previously had issued Perry Thornley a criminal trespassing warning, so when officers found him at the apartment just before 7 p.m., he was arrested.

“He wasn’t supposed to be there, and he was,” Edwards said.

Thornley was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and taken to Penobscot County Jail, where he remained Tuesday night, a jail official said.
