SANFORD, Maine — A local man was arrested Friday after he led deputies from the York County Sheriff’s Office on a high-speed chase through three towns.
Jeffrey Fournier, 48, of Sanford has been charged with eluding a police officer, driving to endanger and operating without a license, according to a post on the Facebook page of the York County Sheriff’s Office.
Yesterday, Deputy Bob Carr of the York County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop Fournier for speeding on Back Road in Shapleigh. When the deputy attempted to stop him, Fournier fled toward Route 109, according to a post.
Fournier led York County deputies, as well as officers from the Sanford and North Berwick police departments, on a 20-mile chase through Shapleigh, Sanford and Lebanon, according to the post.
The chase came to an end in Lebanon when Fournier’s 2006 Subaru hit spike mats deployed by sheriff’s deputies, according to the post. The chase lasted 15 minutes.
Fournier was being held at York County Jail in Alfred on $2,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday if he failed to post bail.
