On Thursday, May 14 at 1:10 p.m., Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Calls Hill Road in Dresden for a report of a stolen gun. The gun was allegedly stolen by a relative living in the area.

An investigation found Frank Foss Jr., 25, formerly of Milo, had allegedly stolen the gun. Foss was found living nearby in a small shack.

Foss has been out on bail stemming from an incident in Milo in December 2019 where he is accused of killing a cat and shooting at his wife and kids while drunk. Foss was charged in Piscataquis County with Domestic Violence Terrorizing with a Dangerous Weapon, Reckless Conduct with a Dangerous Weapon, OUI, and Cruelty to Animals.  He is prohibited from possessing firearms.

Foss was taken into custody without incident. Subsequent search of the shack turned up four stolen guns – a Colt .45 handgun, a Colt .45 revolver, a .44 Marlin rifle, and a 16 gauge Springfield shotgun.

Foss was charged with Violation of Conditions of Release, Theft (Class B, firearm), Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person, and Violating a Protection from Abuse Order (for possessing the firearm).

He was taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset where he is being held without bail. Wiscasset Police Department assisted with this incident.
