Jury indicts man in Brewer robbery

A man accused of holding up a Brewer service station last month was among those indicted Monday by the Penobscot County grand jury.

Karl Schatz, 21, of Bangor is charged with robbery and, in a separate indictment, with two counts of theft in unrelated incidents.

Schatz was one of two men initially charged in connection with a strong-arm robbery at Doc’s Place, a Wilson Street gas station and car wash owned by Daigle Oil Co. District Attorney R. Christopher Almy said last month that charges against the second man would not immediately be pursued because the extent of his involvement was unclear.

According to one previous account, a man who said his car was low on oil went in to ask for help and lured the attendant to the far side of the parking lot. While the attendant was helping the man, a second man fled with the cash drawer. After the attendant cornered that man, a car pulled up and picked up the robber, who got away with the drawer, which contained $150 in cash.

Peter Judkins, 39, of Newport, was indicted on an aggravated-assault charge in connection with a fight in mid-April at a family residence in Dexter that Deputy District Attorney Michael P. Roberts said left his brother comatose. At the time, police reported seeing Peter Judkins throw Dana Judkins from inside a Spring Street apartment to the ground outside. As of Monday, Dana Judkins was listed in fair condition at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Rodney Curtis, 29, of Bangor was charged with the theft of tools and scrap metal from American Concrete in Veazie. A feces-covered court document found at the crime scene also produced three fingerprints and reportedly led investigators to Curtis.

Merton Bowring, 25, of Guilford, was indicted on two counts of robbery and a single count of assault. Deputy District Attorney Michael P. Roberts said Bowring got into a struggle with store employees April 10 while shoplifting at Wholesale Depot in Bangor.

Eric Doucette, 27, of Old Town was indicted on two counts of kidnapping, and single counts of burglary, assault and terrorizing. He allegedly forced a former girlfriend into a car on April 17 and, as they rode, got into a struggle with her. The woman escaped.

The grand jury also indicted the following:

James Burgess, 18, of East Corinth, burglary and theft.

Peter Burns, 28, of Indian Island, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and criminal mischief.
