BANGOR, Maine — A local man and woman described by police as transients were arrested Sunday afternoon after police received a report that a man was sitting on a porch on Essex Street with a firearm and occasionally dozing off.

Though the firearm turned out to be a BB gun, Eugene Caston, 49, was charged with trafficking in dangerous knives after officers found a large pearl-handled spring-loaded knife in his possession, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

Ashley Lee, 24, who reportedly was driving the vehicle Caston was riding in when police caught up with him on Fern Street, was charged with possession of cocaine and violating the conditions of her bail from a prior arrest, Edwards said, citing police reports.
