Maine police seek New York man in Biddeford double homicide

July 21st, 2014 by admin No comments »

Two men shot to death at a Biddeford apartment building two weeks ago were armed with a pellet gun and a rubber mallet and were there to rob a drug dealer, Maine State Police said Friday.

The man who police believe shot them may have been justified in using deadly force, but he wasn’t supposed to have a gun in the first place, police said.

Fuquan Prince Wilson

Fuquan Prince Wilson, 34, of Bronx, New York, who goes by the street name “P,” has a lengthy criminal record, including a felony drug conviction that bars him from possessing a gun, state police said. He is wanted on a warrant charging him with possession of a firearm by a felon. The charge carries a sentence of up to five years in prison upon conviction, but it could also lead to federal charges, which tend to have stiffer sentences.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Wilson last Saturday but kept it secret. The Attorney General’s Office, which prosecutes homicides in Maine, unsealed the arrest warrant and affidavit Friday because Wilson knows police are looking to arrest him, state police said. Investigators believe he fled Maine after the shooting and they are working with authorities in other states to apprehend him.

Wilson is considered armed and dangerous, Lt. Brian McDonough, head of the major crimes unit for the state police in southern Maine, said during a news conference Friday at the state police barracks in Gray.

Wilson shot and killed Russell Lavoie, 42, of

Feds move in, Indian Township governor feels the heat

Time was running out for Indian Township Gov. Bobby Newell.

With Deer Island in New Brunswick on the horizon, the ocean waters of Passamaquoddy Bay lap against the shore at Pleasant Point. At Indian Township, Gov. Bobby Newell says he “got caught in the political crossfire by ambitious people” who wanted his job.

Former tribal Chief Robert Newell stands in the doorway of the seasonal camp he now calls home at Indian Township. Newell spend nearly four years in a Pennsylvania prison after being convicted late in 2008 on 29 counts that included conspiring to defraud the United States, misapplication of federal funds, fraud and lying to federal agencies.

As his re-election bid approached in the summer of 2006, federal investigators representing four agencies descended on the reservation, inspecting documents dating back to 2002 and asking questions about how the governor had been spending federal funds. The investigation, which had been going on for a year, would land Newell in prison.

“My primary goal on the reservation was addressing and helping people who were poor so that they could have something and deal with substance abuse, and every spare dollar I could get I funneled into that,” Newell says. “I got caught in the political crossfire by ambitious people who wanted to be leaders on the reservation and knew that even if I lost an election … I would be elected governor again.”

“They wanted to get rid of me,” he adds.

Signatures submitted, pot debate continues

July 18th, 2014 by admin No comments »

SOUTH PORTLAND — Talk of legalizing marijuana in South Portland became a reality Monday when propot advocates submitted a petition to allow recreational use by adults.

Modeled on a similar measure approved last fall in Portland by 67 percent of voters, the proposed ordinance would allow people age 21 and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana within city limits.

With backing from the national Marijuana Policy Project, Citizens for a Safer Maine submitted 1,521 signatures with their petition. To force council action, the group needed to collect signatures from 5 percent of registered South Portland voters. According to City Clerk Susan Mooney, 959 names were required, making it an apparent safe bet that the city council will have to deal with the issue.

On June 2, aware for months that a petition drive was imminent, the South Portland City Council made a somewhat unorthodox move, voting 5-0 to adopt a pre-emptive resolution opposing the decriminalization of marijuana in South Portland for anything other then medical use.

“We will definitely fight this all the way,” said Councilor Maxine Beecher at the time. “Just because something passes in Portland doesn’t mean it has to pass here.”

This past spring, Beecher joined a stakeholders group formed by Police Chief Ed Googins, shortly after a January announcement by David Boyer, political director of the Maine Chapter of the Marijuana Policy Project. Boyer had said his group would follow up on its success in Portland by launching similar measures in South Portland, Lewiston and York, with an

Gardiner OKs opening of medical marijuana dispensary in former train station

July 18th, 2014 by admin No comments »

GARDINER — The Planning Board at its meeting Tuesday night gave unanimous approval for the operator of four of Maine’s eight medical marijuana dispensaries to move its Hallowell dispensary to the former train station on Maine Avenue in Gardiner.

Wellness Connection of Maine, also with dispensaries in Portland, Brewer and Thomaston, plans to lease the nearly century-old building along the Kennebec River as a dispensary and to make edible marijuana products.

The former railroad depot in Gardiner is where the Wellness Connection of Maine plans to move its medical marijuana dispensary from Hallowell.

Patricia Rosi, CEO of Wellness Connection of Maine, said at the meeting that the company is moving to Gardiner because it needs a larger, more accessible location for its patients. She said the company is looking forward to taking part in revitalization of the city’s downtown and occupying the building that’s been vacant for more than a decade.

The board approved the application with a few conditions, including that the signs meet any National Register of Historic Places conditions, if necessary, and that the city receives a signed copy of the lease agreement with the building owner.

A few residents spoke against the proposal at the public hearing because they object to a medical marijuana dispensary going into the historic building.

“It’s not a place for the community,” said Gayle Warren, of River Avenue. She said she was hoping the building would be used for something that everyone in the city can use.

The former train station was

Old Orchard Beach puts brakes on pot-growing facility

OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine (AP) — Old Orchard Beach town councilors have enacted an emergency moratorium on the cultivation of medical marijuana in nonresidential facilities.

The 60-day moratorium proposed Tuesday night is in response to a local man’s efforts to open a medical marijuana growing and research facility in an old post office in town.

The facility, if approved, would be the second of its kind in Maine.

Town Manager Larry Mead says the moratorium gives the town time to study the implications and develop rules for facilities where state-licensed caregivers would grow the drug to supply their patients.

Pierre Bouthiller, a local builder and firefighter, says his plan to allow several licensed growers to cultivate marijuana in one place is safer than allowing growing in caregivers’ homes which could be targeted by criminals.

OOB cautious about facility – Biddeford – Saco

July 17th, 2014 by admin No comments »

OLD ORCHARD BEACH – The town council was scheduled to consider an emergency ordinance at its Tuesday, June 15 meeting, after the Courier’s deadline, to place a moratorium on the cultivation of medical marijuana in non-residential locations.

The measure is in response to a presentation given to the planning board last week by resident Pierre Bouthiller, who wants to create a state-of-the-art facility for cultivation and research and development of marijuana and edible cannabis products.

Bouthiller hopes to repurpose a building at 60 Saco Ave. that has been vacant for seven years and was once a post office. The facility could house four separate units for use by caregivers and would include security, climate control and lighting. Additionally, Bouthiller said he is working with state officials to incorporate a laboratory component to the facility, to better research the qualities of the plant.

“The goal is to increase the overall scientific body of knowledge about cannabis,” Bouthiller said, “to have peer-reviewable protocols that physicians could rely on for alternative medicine for people that are suffering.”

The research aspect of the center, he said, could be a groundbreaking endeavor for the medical marijuana industry nationally.

“We need to create real science instead of anecdotal,” Bouthiller said. “Not ‘I think,’ but we need to have ‘I know.’”

Bouthiller said he does not use cannabis products, but believes in using them as alternative medicine after seeing his friend struggle with esophageal cancer and using doctorprescribed opiate-based drugs.

“He had no appetite and acute anxiety, and (marijuana) was the only thing
