York police respond to home twice in one night for underage drinking and man with firearm

YORK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) —York police responded to the same home twice early Sunday morning for one count of underage drinking, and one count of a 36-year-old man threatening with a firearm. 

No one involved was injured.

Police first responded to an accidental 911 call that came from 63 Cider Hill Road in York. When officers arrived at the home to investigate the call, they discovered an underage drinking party.

The 45-year-old homeowner, Leighlon Anderson, was charged with providing and allowing minors to consume alcohol. 

After clearing the residence, police received another call that reported a 36-year-old male at the same home had pointed a gun at one of the minors at the party. When the male learned police were called, he hid in the attic.

Before police arrived the male emerged from the attic. Officers were then able to take him into custody and transported him to the York County Police Department.

Joseph David Coreau of Kittery was arrested on the charge of Criminal Threatening with a Dangerous Weapon. 

Coreau was transported to the York County Jail and held on $5,000 bail.

Kittery Police assisted York Police in securing the scene and taking Coreau into custody.

Police did recover 3 loaded firearms from the attic where Coreau was hiding.
