LYMAN, Maine - A Sanford man led police on a 20-mile chase through several York County towns on Saturday, thwarting one attempt by police to stop him using spike sticks before finally surrendering at the second set-up.
Walter Angulo, 26, of 41 Washington St., was spotted around 11 p.m. near Exit 19 of the Maine Turnpike by a Wells officer who knew he was wanted for a failure to appear in court for a domestic violence charge, police said.
The officer tried to stop Angulo on the northbound ramp of the turnpike, but he sped away toward Exit 32, where he turned onto Route 111 headed for Sanford.
Police set up spike sticks, a tire-deflating device, but Angulo drove around it. The chase ended when officers near Day Road in Lyman set up another set of spike sticks, prompting Angulo to pull over and surrender.
Angulo is being held without bail at York County Jail. He faces the domestic violence charge and a charge of eluding an officer. Additional charges as a result of Saturday night include violating conditions of release and criminal speed. His next appearance in York County Superior Court is in October.
