A Glenburn traffic stop resulted in a Brewer man facing drug possession and firearms charges.

Who Was Arrested?

The Penobscot County Sheriff's Office says Scott Senechal, 34, of Brewer was pulled over for speeding in Glenburn on Sunday. At the time, he had an active warrant for failing to appear in court and several active bail conditions.

What is He Charged With?

Senechal was stopped at approximately 10:30 Sunday night by Deputy Michael Parady, who was assigned to the Town of Glenburn as part of a supplemental law enforcement contract. He pulled over Senechal's vehicle near the Village Variety Store on Route 15. During that stop, Deputy Parady discovered that the vehicle's registration had been suspended and that the driver, Senechal, was operating at a time when his license was revoked with a habitual offender status.

The driver and the vehicle were searched and Parady found a loaded firearm, along with 6.7 grams of crack cocaine. In addition, the Deputy discovered 3 fictitious Maine State Motor Vehicle Inspection Stickers, as well as other prescription drugs.

Officials say Senechal was placed under arrest. Once the District Attorney reviews the case, he's expected to be charged with:

  • Possession of a firearm by a prohibited person
  • Violation of conditions of release
  • Possession of crack cocaine
  • Possession of Schedule W drugs
  • Possession of Schedule Z drugs
  • Aggravated forgery
  • Warrant arrest for failure to appear for OUI
  • Operating with a suspended license

Mr. Senechal was transported to the Penobscot County Jail.
