Presque Isle investigates county sheriff candidate. Town refuses to release the report
The city of Presque Isle paid more than $10,000 to a Portland law firm this summer to quietly investigate its police chief, who resigned last week and is now running for sheriff.
“I have no comment on that,” said City Manager Martin Puckett, who would not confirm that an investigation took place but provided an invoice that shows the city’s payment of just over $10,660 to the Portland law firm Troubh Heisler.
In a resignation letter, Irwin wrote he was stepping down to focus on his campaign for Aroostook County sheriff, the county’s top law enforcement official. He announced his candidacy in February.
