EAST MILLINOCKET — A series of traffic stops by the East Millinocket Police Department resulted in multiple arrests for operating under the influence (OUI) and drug possession between March 12 and March 19.

On March 12, Sgt. Jesse Gee, accompanied by Officer Michael Stevens, stopped a vehicle on Central Street after recognizing the driver, Brennen Waite, 49, of Millinocket, whose license was known to be suspended.

The subsequent roadside investigation revealed Waite was driving under the influence of alcohol.

Waite was arrested and charged with OUI, operating after suspension, and violation of conditional release.

At the time of his arrest, Waite had three sets of active bail conditions and his license was already suspended for a prior OUI.

Tests indicated his blood alcohol content (BAC) was nearly three times the legal limit.

The following day, on March 13, Officer Mallory Clayton and Officer Stevens pulled over Logan Duffy-Stanley, 43, of Stacyville, for an inspection violation on Medway Road in Medway.

Signs of impairment were noticed, and after roadside testing, Duffy-Stanley was arrested for OUI.

Officer Clayton’s Drug Recognition Exam confirmed Duffy-Stanley was under the influence of drugs, and he was also found in possession of methamphetamine.

Charges against Duffy-Stanley included OUI of drugs and possession of a Schedule W drug.

On March 14, after a citizen reported a vehicle driving erratically on Central Street, Sgt.

Gee apprehended Cory Ridlon, 49, of Winthrop.

Signs of impairment led to a roadside investigation, and Ridlon was arrested for OUI.

Officer Clayton conducted a Drug Recognition Exam and determined Ridlon was under the influence of drugs.

Ridlon was found in possession of fentanyl.

Additionally, two passengers, Aaron Martin, 34, of Winthrop, and Bryel Marston, 34, of Monmouth, were arrested for possession of Schedule W drugs.

The spree of arrests continued on March 19, when Sgt.

Gee stopped a vehicle on Church Street for erratic driving.

The driver, Paul Phillips, 53, of Millinocket, displayed signs of alcohol impairment.

A subsequent roadside investigation led to his arrest for OUI.

Phillips’ BAC was determined to be more than double the legal limit.

The East Millinocket Police Department’s recent enforcement highlights their ongoing commitment to road safety and the consequences of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
