LIMERICK, Maine — A woman with an arrest warrant for a burglary charge was nabbed by sheriff’s deputies Thursday morning after allegedly causing a disturbance on Pond Road, police said.

Deputies were sent to a residence shortly after 8:30 a.m. Thursday when a resident reported Heather Cote, 32, of Alfred, was banging on the woman’s house and her vehicle, according to Chief Deputy William King of the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies learned about Cote’s warrant while en route to the scene, King said. Part of her bail conditions required no possession or consumption of alcohol or drugs.

While driving to the scene, Sgt. David Chauvette observed a vehicle driving away from Pond Road, King said, and learned from Deputy Gil Hudson at the scene that Cote had just left, driving a vehicle matching the description of the one the sergeant had just passed.

Chauvette quickly reversed course and found Cote’s vehicle on Sokokis Trail, King said. She made an abrupt turn onto Silas Brown Road before quickly turning into a driveway. Upon speaking with Cote, Chauvette could smell intoxicants on her breath.

Cote denied drinking, but Chauvette could tell that she had been and placed her under arrest for the two counts of violating conditions of release, King said. An Intoxilyzer test confirmed the sergeant’s suspicion.

Cote’s license is also revoked as she is listed as a habitual offender, King said. She is being held without bail at the York County Jail.
