FORT KENT, Maine — Fort Kent police arrested two men after responding to a 911 caller’s report of a disturbance involving two males and one female at a Main Street apartment. 


Sgt. Dalen Boucher and Officer Trevor Bellefleur responded to the call at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4. When they arrived at 40 East Main Street, the officers encountered Brandon Thomas, 29, of North Carolina and Kobe Hafford, 22, of Fort Kent.

“Hafford became very aggressive and confrontational with the officers. He caused extensive damage within the apartment by breaking windows,” said Fort Kent Police Chief Tom Pelletier. 

The officers arrested Hafford and charged him with criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, criminal threatening and refusal to submit to arrest.

Thomas had an active warrant for failure to appear for operating a vehicle without a license. Police arrested Thomas on that warrant. 

Both Hafford and Thomas were transported to Aroostook County Jail and are scheduled to appear, Monday, Feb. 3, at Fort Kent District Court.
