Two Arrested After Cursing Dog

Portland police arrested Jay McGranahan, 47, and Joseph Leon Morris, 47, at about 8AM on May 26, and charged the two Portland residents with public drinking. Both men had been arrested earlier in the month on the same charge. A third man was not arrested.

Police found the three men with open containers of alcohol, drinking at a concealed location in Bayside, after a neighbor alerted them to the activity. The neighbor said that she decided to call police only after the men started cursing at a neighborhood dog that was being walked in the area.

Man Arrested at Local Rehab

Portland police arrested Nicholas Yastek, 27, at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center on Preble Street on June 8th. Yastek was wanted by New Hampshire authorities for illegal drug and firearms possession.

Yastek has been wanted in New Hampshire since March, when he walked out of a Portsmouth hospital after being treated for a coma-inducing drug overdose. Police found a large amount of crystal meth at his apartment, as well as a handgun.

Yastek was held on $100,000 cash bail on charges of being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon, and possession of drugs with intent to sell.
