Child was abandoned by car thief
LIVERMORE FALLS, Maine — A Maine man pulled over by police insisted that the marijuana officers found in the car he was driving was not his.
His excuse? He’d stolen the car.
Police tell the Sun Journal that 25-year-old Douglas Glidden, of Jay, Maine, was stopped late Sunday night by police responding to reports of a disturbance.
Livermore Falls Chief Ernest Steward Jr. says when police found the marijuana, Glidden told them he had just stolen the car and the marijuana wasn’t his. Police confirmed the car had been reported stolen.
Glidden is facing several charges including operating under the influence and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer – and yes, a civil violation of possession of a useable amount of marijuana.
It could not be determined if he had a lawyer.
NEWTON, Mass. — A suspect was taken into custody in Bedford on Monday after leading police on a wild chase through several towns.
The suspect was arrested on Springs Road after the vehicle struck a pole, according to Billerica police. The suspect suffered a gunshot wound and was taken to a local hospital, sources said.
The incident started in Newton, where shots were fired during a carjacking in West Newton Square. The suspect vehicle fled to Billerica, where a second carjacking was reported on Nashua Road.
The suspect led police to Carlisle, where shots were fired. The suspect then crashed the second stolen vehicle, a Toyota Tundra, in Concord and carjacked a Ford Flex at gunpoint on Lowell Road.
“There were numerous cruisers on the side of the road. The gentleman just crashed the car, and we heard someone say he hijacked the car,” witness Jason Drinkwater said. “It’s crazy. In Concord, it’s crazy.”
The suspect then fled to Hanscom Air Force Base, where the car drove through the guard gate. The driver continued and was arrested on Springs Road in Bedford when the vehicle struck a pole, police said.
The suspect was not identified.
