Biker killed in shootout
OLD ORCHARD BEACH — A Maine man was killed in a shootout with federal agents during a seven-state sweep of the Outlaws motorcycle gang.
More than two dozen Outlaws gang members across the country were charged Tuesday in Virginia with participating in a criminal enterprise that engaged in racketeering, drug dealing, gambling and witness tampering.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said someone opened fire while agents were serving a warrant Tuesday morning in Old Orchard Beach.
The medical examiner’s office confirmed that Thomas Mayne , 59, was killed. Authorities say a shotgun and a handgun were discovered inside the house after the shooting. No one else was hurt.
Portrait of Poe doesn’t sell
BALTIMORE — A rare portrait of Edgar Allan Poe has failed to sell at auction.
The small watercolor by A.C. Smith is one of just three surviving portraits of the author and the only one that shows him as a writer. Poe looks robust and lacks the mustache that’s familiar from a series of daguerreotypes taken in the final years of his life.
The portrait went on sale Friday at Cowan’s Auctions in Cincinnati. The minimum bid was $15,000, but no buyers emerged.
