Police arrest Bangor man with 12-year-old warrant for unpaid fines

BANGOR, Maine — Two noise complaints on High Street on Monday night led to the arrest of a local man who was wanted on two outstanding warrants, one from 12 years ago, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Leonard Tarvers, 47, was taken to Penobscot County Jail for the warrants, one from 2000 for unpaid fines associated with an operating after suspension conviction, and another warrant for unpaid fines for attaching false plates in 2001, the sergeant and a jail official said.

Officers Kevin Haefele and Shawn Green went to Tarvers’ residence earlier in the evening and gave him a warning to keep the noise down, and Officer Dustin Dow was called back to the scene around 9:15 p.m., Edwards said.

When Dow checked Tarvers’ background, he discovered the man was wanted for the dated warrants and arrested him.

Tarvers remained behind bars on Tuesday, a jail official said.
