SKOWHEGAN, Maine (WABI) - Police arrested a man in Skowhegan following a standoff at Indian Ridge Apartments.

They were following a lead from an investigation regarding the manhunt in the Richmond area.

They say they observed illegal activity in a parking lot at the apartments.

We’re told they ultimately determined that the incident was unrelated to the search for two men in Richmond after a high-speed chase.

The man who was arrested in Skowhegan initially ran away from the police.

They say they found drugs on him when they caught him.

The chief says they are looking for another suspect connected to this incident on Wednesday night.

“We knew that there were a couple of other individuals inside that residence that we were looking at. A search warrant was obtained We were able to bring out two people with the Maine State Police negotiation team. The warrant was executed. The Maine State Tactical team went inside and cleared the residence. Unfortunately, the individual that we are still looking for we have not found yet," Skowhegan Police Chief David Bucknam, said.

Police say they’ll release more information in the morning.
