A Biddeford man is facing multiple charges after an alleged crime spree that included shootings, beatings, and drugs.

Who Was Arrested and What are the Charges?

David Matos, 27, of Biddeford was arrested on Friday after a series of events that brought in members of the Biddeford Police, U.S. Marshals Service, Maine's Violent Offender Task Force, and others. Officials say he was being sought by the State of Maine on multiple warrants for criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct with a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, and elevated aggravated assault.

What are the Details of the Alleged Crime Spree?

It all started on December 21, 2021, when Biddeford Police Officers responded to a 911 call on George Street, for a report of a shooting. The caller told authorities that a man had fired gunshots at him and then left the scene in a vehicle. An investigation into the incident determined that Matos was the alleged suspect in the shooting.

On February 3rd, Biddeford investigators say Matos was the alleged suspect in a violent assault against a female victim. The woman was transported to a Boston-area hospital for severe injuries to her face, after reportedly being pistol-whipped multiple times with a firearm.

Then on February 4th, Biddeford Police began getting 911 calls about a shooting near Jefferson and Center Streets. Once again, Matos was the suspected shooter, who allegedly fired at least six shots at the occupants of a vehicle. An investigation led police to an address in Saco. The Maine State Police Tactical Team went to the address, but Matos had already left the residence.

How was Matos Taken into Custody?

In the midst of that Friday's snowstorm, several agencies collaborated and tracked Matos to an address in Biddeford, where U.S. Marshals were able to safely take him into custody as he left the building on foot. He was transported to the jail and officials say more charges are probable. After his arrest, officials seized a loaded 9mm Glock pistol, 53 grams of suspected drugs, and $3,596 in cash.

This investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of any State or Federal fugitive is urged to contact the United States Marshals Service, District of Maine at med.tipline@usdoj.gov or their local law enforcement agency.
