Bradford man arrested for allegedly trying to sell drugs

A 46-year-old Bradford man who already is facing seven charges from an incident in January added two more to the list last week when he allegedly tried to sell drugs to a store clerk, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Steven Dearborn, 46, who listed a Jamaica Plain, Mass., address in January when he was arrested for car theft and six other alleged offenses, was indicted earlier this month  by the Penobscot County grand jury.

In the latest case, he was arrested Thursday on charges of felony attempted unlawful trafficking in drugs and misdemeanor attempted unlawful trafficking in drugs, Edwards said.

Officer Chris Blanchard was dispatched to the Court Street Market at about 6:10 p.m. March 10 to investigate the report of a man trying to sell the clerk his prescribed drugs. The man left before police arrived but Blanchard quickly found Dearborn at the corner of Main and Hammond streets and found him in possession of Clonazepam and Adderall, Edwards said.

Dearborn allegedly stole a car on Jan. 13 from the Airport Mall parking lot off Union Street and stole another vehicle from the lot at Dysart’s restaurant in Hermon that same day before being arrested in Hampden.

He was indicted by the grand jury in March for theft by unauthorized taking, two counts of burglary of a motor vehicle, unauthorized use of property, criminal mischief, operating without a license, and failure to sign a summons in connection with the January incident.

Dearborn remained at Penobscot County Jail on Monday morning, Edwards said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
