OLD TOWN, Maine — A Glenburn man who reportedly threatened to “cut up” a local woman last week if she didn’t get money from her mother was arrested when the check he got didn’t cash and he returned to the woman’s house, Capt. Kyle Smart said Tuesday.

Christopher Tarr, 25, was “at her door, banging on the door and making threats,” the police captain said. “He was back threatening to cut up the daughter if he didn’t get his money.”

The two women were clearly shaken by the threats, Smart said.

Tarr told police we was owed the $750 for carpentry work and had received a prior $600 payment. A search of his vehicle turned up a plastic baggie that “contained a light brown power” police say is heroin as well as the supplies needed to inject the drug, including a hypodermic needle, an elastic band, cotton balls and a spoon, Smart said.

Tarr was charged with felony unlawful possession of scheduled drugs as well as criminal trespassing and faces a penalty of up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 if convicted of the felony drug charge.
