On December 3, 2018, at approximately 4:30 p.m., the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office took a report of an intoxicated male subject that stole several items from a convenient store in Leeds. Bystanders attempted to stop the subject from leaving the scene. The male then got into his vehicle and struck another vehicle while leaving the parking lot and fled the scene, heading southbound. Later that evening, at approximately 6:45 p.m., Trooper Flanagan was traveling southbound on the Maine Turnpike in Portland. He observed a silver Ford Mustang, matching the description of that given out by Androscoggin County Deputiesearlier in the evening. The vehicle was speeding and unable to maintain its lane, almost striking several other vehicles. Given the traffic and concerns that the subject may flee, Tr. Flanagan waited to stop the vehicle until he was south of the Portland metropolitan area. Trooper Flanagan attempted to stop the vehicle three separate times. All three times the vehicle appeared to be slowing down and coming to a stop in the left most lane of the Turnpike. On the fourth attempt, Tr. Flanagan was able to stop the vehicle in the shoulder and made contact with the male operator, Alfred Bellanceau of Leeds, Maine. Tr. Flanagan put Bellanceau through field sobriety and placed him into custody, where he was transported to the Cumberland County Jail. Bellanceau was booked at the jail and charged with Operating Under the Influence, 2 Counts of Operating after licensed Revoked, Theft by Unauthorized Taking, Driving to Endanger, Leaving the scene of an accident, and Refusing to sign a criminal summons.
