Man charged again


FARMINGTON – A Wilton man with an extensive record of driving violations, including his most recent charges late last year of driving after suspension twice within a month, landed in jail again Monday on a charge of violating a condition of his release.

Wilton police went to 63-year-old Walter G. Noble’s residence on New Year’s Day after police were called for a verbal domestic incident, according to a police affidavit filed with the court.

It was also reported that Noble was consuming alcohol and had bail conditions not to possess or consume alcohol, the document states.

A relative of Noble’s said she and Noble were arguing and she called 911 to report that he was consuming alcohol, it states.

“Walter had alcohol smell on his breath and admitted to drinking alcohol today,” Wilton police officer Blaine Rackliff wrote Monday.

Noble was released from jail Tuesday after posting $2,500 in real estate surety.

His condition continues to be that he not possess or use any alcohol beverages or illegal drugs and will submit to chemical tests and searches of his person, vehicle and residence at any time and without probable cause to determine if this prohibition has been violated.

Another condition is not to drive until properly licensed.

Noble has been convicted of 48 driving-related crimes since 1966 and hasn’t been eligible to drive in Maine since 1968.

Noble served time from March 2001 to November 2005 at the Bolduc Correction Facility in Warren on convictions of being a habitual offender and operating under the influence.

The court date on his newest charge is March 8.
