BANGOR, Maine — A local transient is facing a long list of charges after he broke into an Allen Street home late Wednesday and proceeded to steal the family’s car, according to police.
While Officer David Olmstead was en route to the scene, he saw a black Chevrolet Monte Carlo coming from the Allen Street area, according to Bangor police Lt. Paul Edwards. The vehicle matched the description of the one Peter Carbone, 21, allegedly stole, according to Edwards.
Olmstead quickly followed the vehicle onto Hammond Street, and wanted to make a felony stop on 15th street, Edwards said, but waited for backup officer Derek Laflin to arrive.
As Laflin closed in, the two officers conducted their felony stop at the corner of 14th and Union Streets, the lieutenant said, and after conducting field sobriety tests, took Carbone into custody.
It turned out that Carbone was also a suspect in three burglaries that occurred in Orono over the weekend, according to Orono police Capt. Josh Ewing.
Ewing said the burglaries occurred in the Page Place neighborhood between Saturday and Labor Day, and it’s possible Carbone could face more charges in connection with those incidents.
Carbone was charged with burglary, OUI, operating after suspension and motor vehicle theft by Bangor police, Edwards said, while Orono police are charging him with the three Page Place burglaries, Ewing said.
Carbone is being held at the Penobscot County Jail.
