Drug Raid In Maine Yields Drugs, Pistols, Cash … Off-Road Vehicle … Cannon

August 12, 2022

State police in Maine recovered a cannon during a visit to a home looking for a wanted person, a police spokesman said.

Police arrested three people and seized fentanyl, methamphetamine, prescription drugs, about $8,500 in cash, and “numerous high value items stolen in recent commercial thefts,” a police press release states.

Those items include a Can-Am Side-by-Side off-road recreational vehicle and a cannon.

Police say they don’t know where the stolen items come from.

“If the cannon is known to you or you are missing a cannon please contact the State Police …” the police press release states.

State Police believe the cannon is real and not ceremonial, but as of Friday, August 12 it had not yet been tested, a police spokesman told NewBostonPost by email.

It is about three feet long and two feet high, the spokesman said.

The Portland Press Herald reported the raid on Friday, August 12, the date of the police press release.

The raid took place Thursday, August 4 in the town of Liberty, which is about 24 miles east of the state capital, Augusta.
