WOOLWICH, Maine — A Wiscasset man was arrested Thursday and charged with barging into a Woolwich home on St. Patrick’s Day and threatening the resident with a handgun.

Daniel P. Colby Jr., 32, whose last known address was in Wiscasset, remained at Two Bridges Regional Jail on Friday, charged with Class A burglary and Class C criminal threatening and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, according to Chief Deputy Brett Strout of the Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Office.

The resident of a Mountain Road home reported that when he answered a knock at the door just after 3 p.m. Tuesday, Colby “barged in” and threatened his life with a handgun, Strout said Friday. Colby then allegedly ran from the home.

Wiscasset police and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office joined Sagadahoc County deputies searching for the man Tuesday before “the trail went cold,” Strout said. But on Thursday evening, Augusta police arrested Colby in that city.

Police have not recovered the gun.

The resident, who is known to Colby, was not injured. The incident reportedly stemmed from a dispute among friends and family members, Strout said. The case remains under investigation.

Strout said the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency also participated in the investigation but would not disclose why they were involved.

Colby was arrested in December after leading sheriff’s deputies and a police dog on a search through the woods and into the Back River off Westport Island. Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies received reports that a man was jumping into traffic on Main Road and attempting to enter passing vehicles. They chased the man, later identified as Colby, for about four hours before a firefighter saw him on the shore of the Back River.

Colby then allegedly swam into the river and refused efforts by law enforcement to help him into a fire boat. Eventually he was arrested and charged with crimes that included cultivating marijuana.

Colby is scheduled for arraignment Friday.
