A Maine man with an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Massachusetts was taken into police custody in Bangor on Friday.
Patrick H. Lloyd, 36, of LaGrange was arrested after a traffic stop on Cumberland Street at around 12:30 p.m. for an outstanding warrant issued out of Webster, Massachusetts, for attempted murder, according to Sgt. Jason McAmbley of the Bangor Police Department.
The warrant was issued after a domestic violence disturbance occurred in Webster, according to officials.
At the time of Lloyd’s arrest, officers also recovered a handgun while conducting a search of his vehicle. The handgun was believed to have been stolen from the Ellsworth area in 2020, according to McAmbley.
Lloyd, who has a previous felony conviction, has also been charged with receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. He is being held at the Penobscot County Jail pending his extradition to Massachusetts.
