Shootout on St. John Street
Portland police arrested Patrick Mullen, 36, of Portland on September 19th, after he and another man were allegedly involved in a shootout on St. John Street. The other man, who was driving a Ford Taurus, was not apprehended.

Police say the two men were involved in an argument that soon deteriorated into gunplay, with Mullen firing a pellet gun at the motorist who shot at Mullen before speeding away from the scene. It was uncertain who started firing first. Mullen was released on $100 bail. Police are still investigating.

Jewel Thieves Hit Congress St.
Portland police reported two burglaries of Congress Street stores that involve the theft of jewelry.
Thieves broke into Encore, a consignment shop, overnight on September 20th, and made off with an undetermined amount of vintage jewelry, after doing considerable damage to the store.

Police say thieves also hit the City Soul Jewelers near Longfellow Square, sometime over the weekend of September 23-25, forcing open a side door and stealing jewelry from the store. Police believe that the same thieves then broke into the Toni’s Touch hair salon next door and stole cash.
