DEXTER, Maine — A Stetson man, who is wanted on multiple warrants for his arrest, led police on a foot chase Wednesday night through parts of Dexter.
Dexter police received a tip Wednesday evening that Michael Hurd, 30, of Stetson, who has outstanding warrants and is a person of interest in two break-ins that occurred in Corinna last weekend, was visiting relatives on Denny Drive. Officer Kyle Wilson said he went to the residence and knocked on the door. As he did so, Hurd reportedly fled the home from a back entrance, the officer said Wednesday night.
Wilson said he started a chase on foot and called for backup. Hurd was later spotted on Prospect Street before he eluded police again. A K-9 tracked Hurd back to Denny Drive but Hurd was no where to be found, Wilson said. The relative’s residence and the surrounding area were searched without any further sighting of Hurd.
Police do not believe Hurd is armed. He is 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighs about 200 pounds and has a full beard. When he was spotted Wednesday he was wearing bluejeans and a green shirt.
Anyone who believes they may know the whereabouts of Hurd is asked to contact the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department.
Wilson was unsure Wednesday night what the outstanding warrants involved.
Dexter police were assisted in the search by state troopers, game wardens and the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department.
