Couple sought by police still at large> Officers recover allegedly stolen property from Dover-Foxcroft trailer

DOVER-FOXCROFT — A man and women who escaped from Dover-Foxcroft police Monday night and are wanted on charges of burglary in Kennebec County remained at large Tuesday night.

Patrolman Bob Alberts of the Dover-Foxcroft Police Department stopped a vehicle around 8 p.m. Monday on Route 16 for speeding. The driver of the vehicle allegedly told the officer that he did not have his license on him and gave the officer a fake name and date of birth. While the officer went to his car to confirm the man’s identification, the driver later identified as David R. Knoll, 30, of Dover-Foxcroft allegedly fled from the vehicle into the nearby woods, leaving his female passenger in the car.

Trooper Rod Charrette and K-9 Cabot of the Maine State Police arrived to help track the man. Cabot led the officers to a trailer on the Hewit Road in Dover-Foxcroft. The officers later learned that Knoll had allegedly gone to the trailer and fled out a back door before police arrived. While in the trailer, Patrolman Alberts reported noticing property that may have been stolen in a burglary reported in November 1997.

In an attempt to locate Knoll and the woman passenger, later identified as Brenda Terjelian, 40, of Dover-Foxcroft, officers of the Dover-Foxcroft Police Department, Maine State Police, and the Piscataquis and Kennebec county sheriff’s departments arrived at the trailer the next day. The officers searched the trailer and recovered several thousand dollars worth of property alleged to be stolen.

The police later learned that Knoll and Terjelian had fled the area in a vehicle before officers arrived Tuesday morning. Both suspects are still at large and are wanted on active warrants separate from the charges in Dover-Foxcroft.

The Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department would not release information Tuesday night on how Terjelian had eluded police when Knoll ran, nor would they release a description of the two suspects.

Anyone with information should contact the Dover-Foxcroft Police Department at 564-8021.
