WASHBURN, Maine — A Presque Isle man who skipped town after being sentenced in January to serve three years in prison on cocaine and marijuana charges has been located and arrested, according to police.

A tip to the Aroostook County Crimestoppers helped officers find Robert Van Houten, 34, on Wednesday in a vehicle on Washburn Road in Washburn, Aroostook County Sheriff Darrell Crandall said Wednesday.

Van Houten was arrested and charged with failing to report to jail. He was taken to the county jail in Houlton.

Van Houten had initially been arrested in January 2014 in Oakfield while a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding. During the traffic stop, police said they found about 2 pounds of marijuana and more than 4 ounces of crack cocaine.

Van Houten was charged of aggravated trafficking in cocaine and marijuana. In January 2015, He was convicted of the charges and sentenced to seven years in prison with all but three years suspended. He was granted a stay of execution by the court and told to report to serve his sentence on Feb. 8.

When that date arrived, however, Van Houten did not show up, according to Crandall. Van Houten was recently indicted by the Aroostook County grand jury on a charge of failure to report, the sheriff said.
