WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - Westbrook Police say Warren Knight, a member of Smiling Hill Farms, was arrested on Saturday for trespassing while trying to observe Pike Industries.

Police say Knight trespassed on Central Maine Power property while he was trying to observe the Spring Street quarry of Pike Industries.

Knight had also been trespassing the afternoon before when Pike had a scheduled blast for 3pm, but the blast was deemed unsafe because Knight was standing too close to the blast site. At the time, police were unsure when the property line was and Knight was not arrested.

When Knight returned Saturday morning for the next scheduled blast, police say, CMP had a surveyor on site to determine where the property line was. Knight was then arrested when he returned to the same spot.

Knight is scheduled to appear in Portland District Court on Nov. 19.
