Man accused of speeding 111 mph away from officer among 22 Hancock County indictments

ELLSWORTH, Maine — Twenty-two people were indicted Friday by a Hancock County grand jury, including a Southwest Harbor man accused of furnishing heroin and a Lamoine man accused of speeding away on a motorcycle from a police officer after he allegedly broke the posted speed limit by more than 60 mph.

Alfred Lanpher, 43, of Southwest Harbor was indicted Friday on drug charges and for resisting arrest in May when police went to arrest him on those charges.

Lanpher was not at home on May 22 of this year when police searched a Cedar Lane trailer in Southwest Harbor that he was renting next to the home of another man, Robert A. Goodwin. Goodwin, 42, was suspected of trafficking in heroin when police obtained a search warrant for his home and for Lanpher’s property next door.

At the two properties, police found and took possession of 5 grams of heroin, several suboxone tablets and drug paraphernalia, according to Maine Drug Enforcement Agency officials.

Because he was not at home at the time, an arrest warrant was issued for Lanpher.

Goodwin was not indicted Friday. On May 31 of this year, Goodwin pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated trafficking in scheduled drugs and was sentenced to nine years in prison, MDEA officials have said.

On the same day Goodwin was sentenced, police returned to Cedar Lane to arrest Lanpher but Lanpher allegedly resisted police before being taken into custody.

Lanpher was indicted Friday on charges of unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, assault on an officer, assault and refusing to submit.

Also indicted Friday was a Lamoine man accused of speeding away from police after he allegedly drove his motorcycle faster than 100 mph.

Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Sargent was driving on Route 204 around 7 a.m. June 22 when he encountered a man on a motorcycle traveling at 111 mph in a 45 mph zone.

Mark A. Condon, 29, the motorcycle operator, allegedly refused to stop when he was signaled to do so by Sargent, the sheriff’s department has indicated, but a short time later Condon stopped on Buttermilk Road in Lamoine.

Condon was indicted Friday on charges of eluding an officer, criminal speed, and failure to stop for an officer.
