LIVERMORE FALLS — Police said a local man is accused of threatening to shoot a man with a handgun as he walked away from a residence on Bemis Street on Thursday night.

Quinn Corkum, 18, of 33 Bemis St. was arrested Thursday on a felony charge of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, Police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said Tuesday.

Corkum was later arrested on two more felony charges of illegal possession of oxycodone and trafficking in prison contraband at the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn, Steward said.

The maximum penalty on each charge is five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Corkum is accused of having one oxycodone pill cut into pieces in his wallet, Steward said.

Corkum and a 27-year-old man were walking at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday and got into an argument over money, Steward said. The argument continued when they arrived at a residence they share with a family on Bemis Street. The mother at the residence told one of the men to take a walk to cool off, he said. The man left and slammed the door.


Corkum opened the door and threatened to shoot the man as he walked away, Steward said. The man went to Food City on Main Street and called police.

Officer Devon Bohacik, the primary investigator, was assisted at the scene by officer Kinda Lilley-Karkos and Jay officer Dylan Rider. They interviewed those involved and witnesses prior to Corkum’s arrest.

Corkum was released Friday on $1,500 cash bail, according to a corrections officer at the Auburn jail. He is scheduled to appear April 13 in Lewiston District Court, Steward said.
