No information was available on whether Cannell was still incarcerated as of Monday morning.

At 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 31, Officer Chase Bosse issued a summons to Ryan Parkhurst, 25, of Orono on a charge of disorderly conduct, after he allegedly admitted to watching his roommate taking a shower from outside of a window.

The officers took Young back to the police station for a urine test, which allegedly showed he had methamphetamine in his system. Officers also allegedly found haloperidol in Young’s possession — a scheduled Z drug. They charged him with violation of bail conditions and unlawful possession of a scheduled drug. While Young was in police custody, Officer Ryan Bailey recognized him as the suspect who had been allegedly trespassing on people’s properties along Lincoln Street the past two months. He charged Young with criminal trespass. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and was still incarcerated as of Monday morning. Young is expected to appear in court for all three charges Oct. 8.
