A Hudson man is facing charges after a South Portland traffic stop revealed he was driving a stolen vehicle.

Maine State Police Troopers Lemieux and Flanagan stopped a vehicle on I-295 in South Portland on Friday, June 17th, after the driver made an illegal turn in an emergency crossover. The driver was eventually identified as Andrew Will, 35 of Hudson, but he initially refused to give his correct name and date of birth. Police say he also gave inconsistent stories about how he happened to be in possession of the vehicle he was driving.

Once the Troopers were able to confirm Will's identity, they learned that he had a revoked driver's license and also allegedly found a small amount of suspected methamphetamine in his possession.

While they were away, their home had been burglarized and their vehicle was stolen. Police say Will allegedly entered the owner's home in Glenburn and took their vehicle out of their locked garage.

Andrew Will is now charged with:

  • Operating after revocation
  • Unlawful possession of scheduled drugs
  • Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle

He was also summonsed for:

  • Burglary
  • Theft by unauthorized taking or transfer.

Maine State Police Troopers were aided in this investigation by the Penobscot County Sheriff's Office.
