CONWAY — Former Kennett High classmates of Nathaniel Kibby were not surprised when they learned Monday that he was arrested as a suspect in the alleged kidnapping of Abigail Hernandez, a case that has drawn national attention.

FREYBURG – A Massachusetts man was arrested after allegedly being caught with cocaine while camping on the Saco River.
Police say 21-year-old Yarmouth Port, Mass. man Vaughan C. Renaud was found to be in possession of more than 14 grams of cocaine. Renaud was charged with unlawful possession of a schedule 'W' drug (Class B felony) and
possession/use of drug paraphernalia (Class E misdemeanor). Renaud was allegedly found to be in possession of more than 14 grams of cocaine while camping along the Saco River in Fryeburg Friday night.
"The officers caught him in the act of using the drug," said acting police chief Joshua Potvin. "He was found between mile marker 3 and 4 on the Saco."
Potvin added that police expect 5,000 to 6,000 people to come to the river over the next few weeks. He said considering the amount of alcohol people consume on the river, the amount of major incidents police have to deal with is minimal.
"I commend the officers involved in this investigation for their proactive patrol tactics," said Potvin. "We dedicate additional officers to patrol the Saco River which ensures the safety of the residents and visitors so they have a pleasant experience while camping along the river. The Saco Recreation Council has done an excellent job maintaining the cleanliness and security of the river for all to enjoy."
