Former Holden Cop In Jail For Damaging Business
A former part-time police officer for the Holden Police Department is going to jail for causing damage at a local business.
Nick Fletcher, 40, of Bangor pleaded guilty this week to charges in connection to damage at Twin City Trucks and More in 2017.
On the morning of Oct. 31, 2017, Fletcher set fire to a pile of tires at the business, which spread to a trailer containing engine parts and welding equipment. The vandalism didn't end there, however. Brewer Police said tires were slashed on some of the vehicles in the lot, as well as brake lines and gas lines. In addition, registrations and stickers were stolen from some of the trucks. In all, damage was assessed at more than $40,000.
Fletcher pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal mischief and trespassing, and was sentenced to a month in jail. WABI-TV reports he had not worked in law enforcement since 2012.
NOTE: We have corrected this story. Mr. Fletcher worked as a part-time officer for Holden Police, but was never employed by the Brewer Police Department.
