AG’s Office Handling Criminal Investigation of Former Old Town Police Officer 

Catherine Pegram


The Attorney General’s office is now handling the criminal investigation involving a former Old Town police officer.

Sergeant Michael Hashey resigned last April after 23 years on the department.

The police chief said at the time Hashey was the subject of a investigation into thefts from the department’s evidence room.

The case was given to the Waldo County District Attorney’s office to avoid a conflict of interest in Penobscot County.

We’re told because of more information in the case now, the investigation has been turned over to a prosecutor in the A.G.’s office.

Hashey has not been charged.
