Strange Maine

Founded 2005! Freaks. Weirdos. Unmapped roads. Whispering rocks. Deadening fog. Ghost pirates. Lonely islands. THINGS in the WOODS. Home of Stephen King & Glenn Chadbourne. A place where the 4 seasons really know how to live. Maine: the way life should be! This site is a nexus for conversation about Maine's unique strangeness, people who love it, people who have experienced it, & people who are intrigued by it. History, mysteries, legends, current events, cryptozoology, & more.

Police blotter cornucopia!

Kudos to the Gazette Editor who runs the Gab with the Gazette blog, which archives the Police Blotter returns each week in the area. I've read a lot of police blotters, and the best editors really go the distance in titling their entries, making the reading all the more entertaining. These guys really take the cake! (You can read other culled police blotter reports that Strange Maine has stumbled across before here.)

  • DON’T SHOOT THE MESSENGER
    A caller reported being harassed while delivering newspapers.

  • ATTACK OF THE GERMS
    A caller reported they had a sneezing spell, drove off the road, and hit a sign with their vehicle on County Road.

  • SO IF I PAY, DO I KEEP THE ORANGE JUMPSUIT?
    A caller from Main Street requested to speak with an officer regarding their bail conditions.

  • BRITNEY SPEARS IN MAINE? PART TWO
    A caller from Ossipee Trail reported a suspicious female carrying an infant that was not properly attired.

  • WATCH OUT FOR MY KID
    A Ridgeway Drive resident requested to speak to police in regard to their child’s driving behavior.

    I'm jealous...Why can't our police blotters be entertaining like this here in Connecticut?

    Check out the Ellsworth American's Cops and Courts section. The Bucksport beat is the funniest:
    www.ellsworthamerican.com
    Publishes Tuesday mornings.

    Also a close second is the Island Police on the mdislander.com. Publishes Tuesday mornings.

    My coworkers and I always get at least one good laugh. "Dead pig found in driveway" or "Locals try to evict man from abandoned bus" make me happy I live in Maine!
