DEXTER, Maine — Local police arrested a trio of impaired drivers Friday night into Saturday morning as part of the department’s National Highway Safety Grant OUI enforcement, Dexter Police Chief Kevin Wintle said Monday.

Keith Croft, 49, of Dexter; Jamie Dorman, 47, of Dexter and Charles McEnnis, 33, of Lowell, Mass., were arrested and charged with an OUI, Wintle said. The three were arrested within a span of four hours, he added.

“For a small department, that’s fairly good,” he noted.

The Dexter Police Department was one of 70 forces statewide to receive the grants, which are in effect through September.

The three drivers were pulled over for routine traffic violations by Lt. Alan Grinnell and Officer Allen Emerson. Grinnell found Croft and Dorman to be under the influence, while Emerson arrested McEnnis, Wintle said.

Croft, Dorman and McEnnis were bailed out from the Dexter police station following their arrests.
