Wanted Bethel man turns himself in, authorities say
BETHEL, Maine (WABI) - A Bethel man considered armed and dangerous with multiple warrants for his arrest has turned himself in after a lengthy search by police.
The Oxford County Sheriff’s Department says 47-year-old Jeremiah Adams turned himself into the Rumford Police Department around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Police were called to a home on Grover Hill Friday night after a woman called stating her home camera system has been deactivated.
A friend of hers went to the home and found Adams, armed with a handgun.
The friend left the home and called police.
Maine State Police arrived and attempted to make contact with Adams, who was believed to be barricaded inside the home.
Police say they made entry into the home early Saturday morning but did not find Adams.
A Jeep Wrangler Adams was seen driving was found abandoned in Albany earlier Saturday.
Officials say he will be processed and transported to the Oxford County Jail in South Paris.
