Accidental 911 Call Leads to Arrest

| January 28, 2014


Winterville: A Bangor man is arrested after an accidental 911 call.  Shortly before midnight on Monday the Aroostook County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from the residence on the Aroostook Road in Winterville. When the call was answered, no one was on the line. Dispatchers called the number back and talked with the listed owner, who said she had not intended to dial 911 and was fine. When asked if she was alone, she said no and identified a man named “Frank” as being there with her. She could not provide Frank’s last name, when asked. Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the home and spoke with the homeowner and Frank, who was subsequently identified as 50-year-old Francis Leonard of Bangor. While there was no problem at the home,  Deputies determined Leonard was wanted on a warrant out of Penobscot County for failure to pay a fine related to a conviction for trafficking in hallucinogenic drugs. Leonard was taken to the Fort Kent Police Department, where he posted bail.
