WATERBORO, Maine - A York County deputy's traffic stop on a speeding car in Waterboro on Sunday yielded the arrests of all four occupants of the vehicle, including a Rochester, N.H., man who had a warrant for his arrest and a Berwick man who was a fugitive from justice out of Strafford (NH) County.

The arrest of the foursome unfolded around 6 p.m. when Deputy Cody Frazier observed a vehicle parked oddly at a local store in Waterboro. He conducted surveillance and noted that the four occupants acted furtively when they exited from the store, specifically noting a male drove to the store but a female drove away.

According to a press release today from York County Sheriff Bill King, Frazier continued to surveil the vehicle as it headed toward the center of Waterboro gaining speed until it exceeded the speed limit. The deputy then executed a traffic stop near the intersection of Main Street and Sokokis Trail and discovered that the driver, Megan Denbow, 30, of Berwick, did not have a driver's license. Megan was arrested for operating without a license.

The deputy continued his investigation and questioned the male who he observed driving the vehicle to the store a few moments earlier. The male, Christopher Jenkins, 38, of Lebanon, was also arrested for operating without a driver's license. Additionally, Jenkins was charged with violating conditions of release from an earlier arrest.

Turning his attention to the rear passengers, he found that one, Taylor Greene, 25, of Rochester, had an active warrant for operating without a driver's license.

The last individual provided a false name after which the deputy conducted additional queries and discovered that the name provided by the man did not match his description. Investigating further, Frazier identified the man as Ryan Tiberio, 26, of Berwick, a fugitive from justice from Strafford County.

Denbow was released on Tuesday on $300 cash bail pending her next court appearance in Springvale District Court in February.

Jenkins was charged with operating without a license and violating conditions of release for a prior drug arrest. He was released on Tuesday on personal recognizance pending an April arraignment.

Greene was arrested on a warrant charging him with driving without a license. She was released on $100 cash bail with a court date next month in Springvale.

Lastly, Tiberio was arrested as a fugitive from justice in New Hampshire. He waived extradition today and will be sent back to New Hampshire to face charges on Thursday.
