No crime was committed, and there was no threat to the public after state police received several reports at about 12:50 p.m. on January 6 of a man carrying a rifle and a large knife walking in the residential area of Elm St in Derby Line. Troopers and Orleans County sheriff’s deputies responded to the area. At the time, a basketball game was in progress at the nearby Elementary School, with several more people arriving for a subsequent game. Troopers responded to the school, and the decision was made to move the remaining people inside and place the facility into lockdown as a precaution while a search was conducted. At approximately 4:10 p.m., troopers and deputies located a man believed to be the one in question nearby on Elm St. A rifle was slung on his person which was determined to be an unloaded bolt action-style rifle. He cooperated with police when interviewed, and it was determined that no crime had been committed and there was no threat to the public. Troopers remained on the scene until the facility was vacated, and the male subject departed the immediate area. A substantial presence of troopers and deputies was visible in the area for the duration of the incident.
