Two Arrested After High Speed Chase in Stolen Car

Maine State Police
Caldwell, McGregor (MSP)

State Police arrested two men yesterday after a high speed chase involving a stolen car. It’s believed the men had abandoned a different stolen vehicle on the side of I-95.

It all started at around 5 a.m. on Thursday when the State Police responded to a report of a vehicle broken down on I-95 in Alton. Two people were seen walking away from the car but they were gone by the time police arrived. A check of the silver Chevy van revealed that it was a stolen vehicle from Hartland.

As police were searching for the two suspects, they received a report of a second vehicle, a 2002 Black Saab, that was stolen from a location in Howland just before 8 a.m. Then at around 3 p.m., troopers responded to a report of a reckless driver on I-95 in Hampden which turned out to be the stolen Saab. When police tried to stop the vehicle, the driver took off.

Trooper Barry Meserve finally used his own cruiser to stop the stolen car when it exited the interstate at the Ridge Road exit in Plymouth. Both vehicles sustained minor damage.

Police arrested David McGregor, age 24 of Canaan, and Christopher Caldwell, age 25 of  Piitsfield. McGregor, whose license is under suspension, is currently on probation for a home invasion armed robbery in Somerset County and had just been released from prison 2 weeks prior. He has initially been charged with Eluding a Police Officer, Driving to Endanger, and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle. Caldwell is charged with Unauthorized Use of  Motor Vehicle. More charges are expected at the conclusion of the investigation.

The State Police troopers were assisted by several agencies, including the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department and the Newport Police.
