ROCKLAND, Maine — Bail was set at $5,000 cash for a 45-year-old man with 25 aliases who was caught Sunday with a stolen car, police said.

A man who identified himself as Carl S. Oldham was arrested Sunday by Thomaston police after officers responded to a report of a man lost in the woods off Jacobs Lane, which is located off Beechwood Street in Thomaston. The man was eventually found, but also discovered was a man in a parked car.

Officers questioned the man and then determined the vehicle had been reported stolen from Godin’s Auto in Auburn, according to an affidavit filed in Rockland District Court.

The man gave the name Carl S. Oldham, who police said had a revoked license.

The dispatch center then notified officers that “Oldham” had 25 other aliases.

On Monday, the district attorney’s office filed a criminal complaint in the Rockland court naming the man as Carl S. Stanwood. Stanwood was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, failure to give correct name, operating after revocation, and placing improper plates on a vehicle.

The complaints note that Stanwood has multiple convictions including a financial card theft conviction in 2010 in North Carolina.

Judge Patricia Worth set bail at $5,000 cash. Attorney Jeremy Pratt, who was representing defendants at their initial court appearances Monday, said Stanwood does not expect to be make any cash bail that would be set.

Stanwood remains at the Knox County Jail in Rockland.
