Randy E. Tremaine, 47, of Hallowell, was issued a summons for aggravated criminal mischief and leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

A Wednesday news release from Lt. Chris Read said at just after midnight April 9, a deputy was “approached by a motorist advising that they had observed some mailboxes smashed towards Belgrade.”

Deputies later found an estimated 26 victims between the “Belgrade and Oakland area.” 

“At this point in the investigation, there is believed to be over $4,000.00 in total damage done to mailboxes, utility poles and fences,” Read wrote.

Tremaine was located later on April 9. He is expected to appear in court on July 27.
