POLICE BEAT

Duo charged in Bangor boat burglary

BANGOR, Maine — A 63-year-old man staying on a boat docked at the Bangor Waterfront heard people on the vessel after the Toby Keith waterfront concert Saturday night and chased them down, Bangor police Sgt. Larry Webber said Wednesday.

Police received a report of two men fighting on Pleasant Street near Saliba’s Rug Sales and Service around midnight Saturday, and when officers arrived one of them was in a headlock.

Anthony Iannello, 22, of St. Albans, N.Y., was holding the man from the boat, who told police he saw Iannello on the vessel and chased him and Jared Haney, 24, of Palmyra to Pleasant Street after he noticed a life-saving flotation ring was missing, Webber said.

Iannello and Haney got into a 2008 Pontiac GT and were attempting to leave when the man from the boat decided to stand in front of the car, the sergeant said. When the car started to move, the man “climbed on top of the car and smashed the windshield,” the sergeant said.

Haney and Iannello both were arrested and charged with felony burglary and misdemeanor theft by unauthorized taking. Both face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 if convicted of felony burglary for taking the flotation ring.

The man from the boat was not charged for the damage done to the Pontiac, and the flotation ring was not recovered by police, Webber said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
