LITTLETON, Maine — Ronald Lewis, 22, of Littleton, who had warrants for his arrest, was nabbed Friday night by Maine State Police.
Lewis, who had failed to appear in 2008 for sentencing on robbery, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon and violation of conditions of release in Houlton Superior Court, was arrested as he attempted to elude police, according to Sgt. Tom Pelletier of the state police.
Pelletier said the Houlton barracks received an anonymous tip that Lewis was staying at a Route 1 home in Littleton. When Trooper Rob Flynn arrived, Lewis allegedly fled through an open window in the back of the home.
While Flynn, along with Troopers Dennis Quint and Dan Marquis and U.S. Border Patrol Agents from Houlton searched for Lewis, another resident called to report that Lewis was hiding in a pickup truck a short distance from the home.
Quint went to the scene and arrested Lewis, who also was wanted on a 2010 violation of condition of release from Houlton District Court. He was arrested without incident.
In addition to the warrants, Lewis has been charged with trafficking in dangerous weapons or knives. He is being held without bail at the Aroostook County Jail.
