Comments Off on Wrong-way driver in Bangor had meth, knives and metal knuckles, police say

A Bangor man who was pulled over in April for driving the wrong way on a one-way street had methamphetamine, metal knuckles and an illegal knife in his car, police say in court records.

Robert Dean Loven III, 29, was arraigned Saturday on charges stemming from the incident.

Police on the night of April 2 pulled over a Chevy Venture that was heading the wrong way on Chestnut Street.

After the driver, who was identified as Loven, gave consent for police to search his car, officers and a drug-sniffing dog uncovered six small plastic baggies of methamphetamine, records say. Police also recovered two pipes with drug residue, an illegal knife and a set of metal knuckles, according to documents.

Loven is charged with possession of illegal drugs and paraphernalia, and possession of prohibited weapons. He was arraigned before District Judge Todd Strohe and released on $10,000 unsecured bail.

Police were not immediately available to comment on the reason for the lapse between the incident and Loven’s arraignment.
