HOULTON, Maine — A Linneus man who allegedly amassed more than $10,000 worth of tools during a burglary spree in Littleton last November and was also one of three people arrested on drug trafficking charges in Ellsworth last October was recently indicted by the Aroostook County grand jury.

Jesse Sawyer, 32, was one of 47 people indicted by the grand jury during the first session of the year, said District Attorney Todd Collins.

Sawyer was arrested after Houlton Police Officer Theron Bickford attempted to pull over the Nissan Pathfinder he was driving, but Sawyer allegedly failed to stop. He later ditched the vehicle and fled into the woods, where he was apprehended by the officer.

Bickford said the vehicle Sawyer was driving was “loaded with tons and tons” of tools that were allegedly stolen overnight during a series of burglaries.

Sawyer was indicted for operating after suspension, eluding, refusing to submit to arrest, receiving stolen property, violation of condition of release and failure to stop for an officer.

While in Ellsworth last October, Sawyer and two others were apprehended after local police found a suspected mobile methamphetamine lab in a High Street parking lot. He was charged with a felony count of trafficking in drugs in that incident.
