OLD TOWN, Maine — Three people who were stopped earlier this week while riding in a vehicle reported stolen from a Hampden business were arrested this week on a variety of charges, most of them connected to drugs and weapons.
The arrests took place early Monday afternoon after Old Town police Officer James Slauenwhite heard about the missing tan Mercury, recalled having seen one matching that description in the vicinity of Regency Trailer Park and went to look for it, Old Town police Sgt. Michael Hashey said Thursday.
Slauenwhite found the Mercury at the entrance of the park’s driveway and pulled it over. The driver and two passengers were placed into handcuffs while they and the car were searched, Hashey said.
Adam Hathorn, 33, of Bangor, who was driving the missing Mercury, was charged with possession of a synthetic hallucinogen after police found a small plastic bag of bath salts in one of his shirt pockets.
Jamie Lewis, 36, also of Bangor, was charged with carrying a concealed weapon after officers found a pistol tucked into the waistband of his pants. Lewis also was charged with possession of a synthetic hallucinogen, trafficking in dangerous knives and violating the conditions of his bail from a previous arrest, Hashey said.
Kendra Allen, 25, of Dexter was charged with possession of a synthetic hallucinogen.
No one, however, was charged in connection with the stolen car, Hashey said. He said the vehicle had been reported stolen by Rent-A-Wreck after it was not returned on time. The business opted not to press charges, he said.
