Orono man reports e-mail harassment

A man living in Orono told police that he is being harassed by e-mail. The man told Orono police Officer Ruth Turner that a Rockport, Texas, man had sent him an e-mail message that included allegations that the Orono man was wanted in Texas for illegal activities, including for criminal trespassing.

The Orono man said he checked with the Aransas County, Texas, Sheriff’s Department and with FBI officials here in Maine and that they indicated there were no outstanding warrants and that he should contact local police.

He did so on Jan. 16. One day later he told Turner the same man sent him another e-mail message saying the man obtained his address with the assistance of the FBI. The Orono man sent an e-mail himself, telling the man to stop contacting him or that he would take action.
