Sargent Barrieau of Orono Police Department (OPD) was on patrol on Forest Avenue and stopped a car for speeding. When Officer Barrieau approached the car, he smelled marijuana and conducted a search of the vehicle which turned up marijuana and drug paraphernalia, including a pipe and rolling papers. Because the driver was not 21 and did not have a medical card, she was summoned for possession of marijuana and given a Dec. 20 court date.

A resident assistant (RA) in Gannett Hall smelled marijuana in one of the rooms and called the University of Maine Police Department (UMPD).

OPD received a noise complaint from The Avenue apartments late on a Friday night. Officer Morse arrived to the apartment and knocked on the door; after a few minutes the two occupants came out. They were given a disorderly conduct notice and told that if they prompted another complaint within 24 hours they could be summoned. Roughly half an hour later, OPD was again called to the same apartment, and this time they demanded that the party end and everyone leave. As guests were leaving, officers saw alcohol in the possession of minors. As a result, they summoned the two residents for furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol.
