Maine officers awarded for defusing standoff
PORTLAND, Maine — Three South Portland police officers were honored Wednesday for their bravery in defusing a potentially deadly standoff last summer involving a suspect who allegedly was threatening to blow up an apartment building in a densely populated neighborhood.
The medal of bravery – one of the department’s highest honors – was awarded by Police Chief Edward Googins to Rocco Navarro, Theodore Sargent and Andrew Nelson during a ceremony at the South Portland police station.
