Police arrest Fort Kent man, charge him with car theft

FORT KENT, Maine — Police arrested and charged a Fort Kent man Friday after he allegedly stole a vehicle and took it on a ride to Caribou.

A resident of Brookside Apartments called the Fort Kent Police Department at 9:15 a.m. Friday to report that she witnessed a man stealing her car.

“She said she saw someone get in her car and drive off with it,” Fort Kent Police Chief Tom Pelletier said Monday.

The woman described the suspect as a “possibly teen-aged, thin male with dark hair,” Pelletier said.

At about 2:45 p.m. on Friday, the woman again called the police to report that the same man had just returned the car to its parking space at the apartment complex.

Sgt. Dalen Boucher responded and arrested 20-year-old Corey Raymond on theft warrant out of Presque Isle. Boucher charged Raymond with operating while being a habitual offender, theft of a motor vehicle, and violation of conditions of release.

“The vehicle was returned with front end damage,” Pelletier said.

Raymond is scheduled to appear Tuesday, Sept. 4, at Fort Kent District Court.
