DEC helps Maine game wardens ticket Glens Falls man

Earlier this month, state Department of Environmental Conservation officers George Lapoint and Alan Brassard assisted the Maine Warden Service in its investigation of a deer shot from the road in Allagash, Maine. The MWS investigation determined the deer was shot by a Glens Falls man who had returned to New York the same night.

Lapoint and Brassard interviewed the subject and obtained a confession after presenting evidence from the MWS. On Friday, Jan. 18, Brassard served the suspect, on behalf of the MWS, with paperwork charging him with unlawful shooting/discharge from a public highway, unlawful possession of a wild animal, passing a tagging station without tagging a deer, and unsworn falsification.

The suspect reportedly did not violate New York law.
