Police charge 16 in Hancock County underage drinking bust

FRANKLIN, Maine — Sixteen people, all under the age of 21, face charges after police busted a party Saturday on Donnell Pond, according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Department.

The bust occurred after police received information that an after-prom party was being held at a private residence on Donnell Pond, Lt. Chris Thornton of the sheriff’s department said Monday in a news release.

Eleven of the underage people facing charges are from Bar Harbor, while the other five are from other Hancock County towns, according to the news release.

All but one of the 16 people have been charged with illegal possession of liquor by a minor. That person, a 17-year-old boy from Lamoine whose name is not being released because he is a minor, has been charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing government administration.

Three people at the party were arrested and taken to Hancock County Jail on additional charges, according to police.

Bar Harbor residents Isaiah Keene, 18, and Jalique Keene, 19, were arrested on charges of furnishing a place for minors to consume liquor. Isaiah Keene also was charged with refusing to submit to arrest and disorderly conduct.

Elijah Malloy, 18, of Bar Harbor was arrested on charges of refusing to submit to arrest and disorderly conduct.

A 17-year-old juvenile boy and seven other Bar Harbor residents each were summoned only on a charge of illegal possession of liquor by a minor:

— Teagan Candage, 19.

— Rebecca Jean Grey, 19.

— Geoffrey Hanscom, 18.

— Steven Hanscom, 20.

— Evan Jeannotte, 18.

— Jonathan Phelps, 20.

— Dylan Richardson, 18.

Also charged with illegal possession of liquor by a minor were Dakota Abbott, 18, of Hancock; Dylan Collin, 18, of Trenton; Julia Nelson, 18, of Tremont; and a 15 year-old juvenile girl from Lamoine.

Additional charges are likely in the case, Thornton said in the release.
