ROCKLAND — The Knox County Grand Jury met for one day and handed down five indictments Dec. 4. An indictment does not imply guilt.  

Jon P. Baribeau, 48, of Brunswick, was indicted for attempted theft and attempted burglary of a motor vehicle Aug. 28 in Camden. According to the affidavit filed in court by Camden police, they received a report around 10 a.m. on Aug. 28 from a store manager that a person dressed in a yellow rain suit and wearing a ski mask, attempted to get into the back of a Brink’s armored truck that was parked outside the store. The man was unsuccessful and then ran off in the woods behind the shopping center. Belfast police officer Travis Spencer, and his trained dog, Dex, a Dutch-German shepherd mix, assisted with the search but they did not locate the man.

On Sept. 2, Camden police were contacted by Brunswick police about a possible suspect, who was living with his sister. She told police that she believed her brother was the one who tried to gain access to the Brink’s truck, the report said. Police obtained a search warrant and searched the apartment of the sister in Brunswick where they collected a dark woolen knit hat and a yellow raincoat as evidence, according to the court document. Baribeau was arrested Sept. 5 in Brunswick and transported to the Knox County Jail.

Jacob Michael Carney, 26, of the Maine State Prison, was indicted for escaping Aug. 16 from the Maine State Prison in Warren. He was later apprehended in Rockland by Rockland Police.

Troy A. Crane, 26, of Martinsville, was indicted for criminal operating under the influence and operating beyond license conditions or restrictions April 23 in Thomaston.

William Deane Jr., 41 of Thomaston, was indicted for domestic violence criminal threatening, domestic violence terrorizing, domestic violence assault, and criminal restraint for an incident Nov. 1 in Thomaston. The charge of domestic violence assault was elevated to a felony because of a previous conviction in April 2017, in Knox County Superior Court.

Chad Salvas, 39, of Rockland, was indicted for two counts of theft and two counts of forgery. The indictment alleges that Salvas forged two checks and stole more than $1,000 from a lobster business in Rockland on March 18 and March 23.
