BOOTHBAY HARBOR, Maine (AP) — Police say several Maine town residents helped them capture a suspect considered armed and dangerous.
Boothbay Harbor police officials say they learned Saturday afternoon that the 38-year-old Libson man allegedly stole a vehicle from the Biddeford area and had fled to Boothbay Harbor. The Bangor Daily News reports Officer John Braley located the stolen vehicle and determined the suspect was in a nearby apartment with help from dispatchers and residents.
