BANGOR – A former Old Town police officer made his first court appearance today.
Michael Hashey is accused of stealing items from the departments evidence room before resigning two years ago. He’s facing charges including theft, tax evasion and one count of tampering with public records.
Officials believe Hashey stole more than $10,000 from the City of Old Town and an additional $1,000 from the Old Town Police Association.
His bail was set at $10,000 today and Hashey will appear in court once again in May.
The case is also expected to be presented to a Grand Jury which will consider whether he should be indicted.
