Passadumkeag Man Charged with Impersonating State Trooper 

A Maine man has been charged with impersonating a public servant for allegedly going to a neighbor’s house, telling the couple living there he was a Maine State Police trooper and taking items from their home. Stephen Kinsella, of Passadumkeag, made his first court appearance Monday at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor. Police say that a trooper recently had given Kinsella a business card, which Kinsella then used to claim he himself was a trooper. Police said Kinsella had recently moved to Passadumkeag, a small town north of Bangor. When state police arrived at the home, they allegedly caught the 40-year-old Kinsella in the act of taking items from the residence. He is also charged with burglary and theft. (AP)
