FORT KENT, Maine — Officials with the Maine State Police confirmed Friday that an officer attached to the Troop F barracks in Houlton is the subject of an internal investigation and has been placed on leave.

Trooper Stanley Jandreau, an 18-year veteran with the Maine State Police, is on “administrative leave with pay while a review is taking place on a case I can’t talk about,” Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the state police, said Friday afternoon. “I am not getting into any details at this point.”

Jandreau lives in Fort Kent and is assigned to the state police commercial vehicle enforcement unit based out of Houlton, McCausland said. He said he did not know when the administrative leave went into effect.

The review is being handled internally by the state police, he said.

“I have nothing else to say,” he said. “This is where it stands as of this Friday.”

McCausland did not know if or when additional details might be released.
