PARIS – A pair of men were indicted Friday on counts of fraudulently obtaining hunting licenses and weapons charges stemming from a string of incidents in November.

Andrew Bean, 51, of 292 Christian Ridge Road, was indicted by the Oxford County grand jury on charges including being a felon in possession of a firearm and criminal driving while intoxicated.

He was charged with operating under the influence on Nov. 21 as he attempted to join a hunting party on Stock Farm Road, according to the Maine Warden Service.

Because of a lengthy criminal history, Bean had been prohibited from possessing a weapon.

According to court records, Bean has four felony convictions, including two for operating under the influence, and eight misdemeanor convictions, most of which are for violating conditions of prior release.

The felony convictions all stem from incidents in Paris, the first of which was in 2001 when he was charged with operating after revocation, eluding an officer and operating under the influence. The eluding charge was dismissed as part of a plea deal, and he was sentenced to serve two years at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham, plus pay a $2,400 fine on the remaining two charges.

The grand jury also indicted David Ray Foster, 39, of 50 Upper Swallow Road, South Paris, who wardens said was with Bean when Bean was arrested Nov. 21.

Foster was indicted on charges of fraudulently obtaining a hunting license and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Wardens said they confiscated two firearms from Bean and Foster the day they were first charged: a .270-caliber hunting rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun.

The men were charged, the Warden Service said, after wardens went to the area in response to trespassing complaints.
