Two New Hampshire residents were arrested Friday after an early morning police chase through Limerick and Waterboro.
Shawn Davis, 28, of East Wakefield, New Hampshire, was charged with eluding an officer and faces additional charges after officers allegedly found him in possession of about seven grams of heroin, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office. Martina Cervantes, 27, of Concord, New Hampshire, was charged with failure to submit to a police officer, the sheriff’s office said.
York County sheriff’s Deputy Cody Frazier attempted to pull over a 1998 Toyota camper driven by Davis for driving erratically and having a defective tail light about 4 a.m. near Sokokis Trail near Enterprise Road in Limerick, the department said in a statement.
Davis allegedly did not stop after Frazier turned on his cruiser’s lights. The sheriff’s office said that Davis continued southbound on Sokokis Trail into Waterboro and at one point shut off the camper’s exterior lights.
The camper then turned onto Chadbourne Ridge Road before turning onto Bradeen Road, which is a dead end. The camper crashed into a snowbank and continued about 150 feet down an uncleared path into the woods, the sheriff’s office said.
After the camper got stuck, Davis and Cervantes fled scene, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies followed their tracks and found both Davis and Cervantes hiding in separate places, the sheriff’s office said.
Davis was found in possession of about seven grams of heroin, and deputies found he was wanted on warrants in both Maine and New Hampshire for drug charges.
Both of them are being held at the York County Jail in Alfred, where Davis is being held on $5,000 bail and Cervantes on $500 bail.
They are expected to be arraigned Monday via video, according to the sheriff’s office.
