    Bangor – the sex offender and Methodone clinic capital of Maine.

    • Ben Hutchins

      Looks like somebody’s never been to Lewiston.

      • HowdyNeighbor

        Looks like somebody is posting garbage without doing their research. Bangor has more sex offenders than any other city in Maine and Bangor has more Methodone clinics, too, thanks to Bangor’s incompetent city council.

          You forgot the hopeless house that has folks shipped here right out of prison from all over the country I am sure that adds to our problems as well.

          • HowdyNeighbor

            That’s right. They house sex offenders, too. There are rooming houses in Bangor that cater to sex offenders, located right in the middle of neighborhoods. Since Bangor’s city council refused to pass an ordinance preventing convicted child rapists from living where children congregate, the monsters can live anywhere in Bangor, including right next to schools, parks, daycare centers, the city pool, etc.

            Exactly. Bob Carlson was part of that fiasco (Hope House) also. I really think the PD or the FBI needs to look into everything that man had dealings with. He is and was part of the downfall that the City of Bangor has taken. People like Shawn Yardley who openly supported anything this man wanted, should figure out that this man was all about brining the drug addicts here and the pedophiles for his own financial gain and also to feel that he was “helping”.

          The methadone clinics were supposed to give all the little junkies their fix so they didn’t have to commit such robbery. Geez, I wonder what went wrong. I’m with ya neighbor.

    Great job Bangor Pd for keeping the streets safe. Next time smile at the camera pretty boy, make your family proud!

    You know if this State would out law the dispensing of oxycodone all these ************* would move to another State.

    • Ben Hutchins

      Well, sure. On the other hand, if the state banned gasoline we’d have a lot fewer car crashes, too, but that’s not a good idea either.

      You realize Oxycodone is an actual prescription medication that helps people, right? Yes people abuse the h–l out of it…but its not like the pharmacies are handing out crack.

    I can’t wait to see his mug shot. But, where are the neck tatoos?

    • Anonymous

      Didn’t you get the memo? He was going to sell the drugs to pay for a tattoo.

      • Anonymous

        Ah, that makes sense> Should have been faster leaving the scene. He could have gotten it done before he was caught. lol

        • Anonymous

          He was trying to be fast, but must have gotten held up picking out “other merchandise that resembled candy bars or Slim Jim snacks.”

      Poor people make up for not having neck tattoos by wearing Ed Hardy clothing.

      Duh.

    I was raised in Bangor when I95 was built. We hated it except for rolling start drag races. Now, I like I95 because I can cruise thru the city in a blink. I avoid all the b.s. that you folks have to put up with. Im sorry the city has fallen into the hell of drugs, pervs, and law breakers. Im told the City Councilors sit at meetings wearing casual clothes and even eating sandwiches. Maybe they need to become less casual and more professional and thoughtful in order to save the city.

      Exactly.. as I posted on here the police department is running with huge shortages and no contract.

      People relapse, it happens. He still needs to be punished.

    I bet if we open another 3 methadone clinics in town the crime would go down. Isn’t that what we were sold with Acadia 12 years ago? This is a sad situation for the city of Bangor. I feel for the employees that had to have their secure world interrupted by such trash. Good job Bangor PD, get used to it.

    Good going Bangor PD!

    The rate of these crimes has skyrocketed. It seems like most drug stores in the area are now robbed about once a month. I wouldn’t ever let one of my family members work at a pharmacy these days. Sad really.

  • People are to quick to judge places like the hope house and Acadia . It’s not the drugs that is the real problem because we all have choices in our lives. It is the person who choses to abuse these prescription drugs. I think these places save lives of people who have made bad choices and want to be a better person so I wouldnt judge to quickly.

    Gimme all the oxy’s, a Baby Ruth, and a couple of Slim Jims. And don’t try anything stupid! Obviously he’s only into the hard drugs because he didn’t grab a bag of chips. Oh, Did he forget the Huggies?

      No weapon?
      I would at least have to see a weapon and know that they didn’t just have a finger in their pocket.
      This punk was a regular at the Hannaford parking lot across the road, trying to bum money from people.

  • Sickofpppljudging

    Wow people are quick to judge the methadone clinics not everyone that goes there are scum bags I know some great people that go there and they have a house over their head a new car and are enrolled in college fulfilling their dreams now if they methadone clinics weren’t here these people would still be on the streets doing the bad stuff but yet on the other side there are people that go there for the wrong reasons so unless you have walked down that path you will never realize what opiate addiction is and how bad it is to fight and how good the methadone clinics help you fight the opiate addiction. The people doing robberies aren’t in the methadone clinics so check your facts before you judge,,

    Everyone is upset about this… How about some pressure is placed on the new city council to actually do something. Ask them why the Police Department is 13 officers short and could actually use more than that. They are also working without a contract right now.. No one likes a “police state” but some forget that everyday calls of service take up alot of time. Wake up Bangor
