Maine fugitive faces new charges after reported burglary in Rochester


ROCHESTER - A Maine fugitive faces new charges after a reported burglary early Friday morning at an apartment at 134 North Main Street.

A man in the apartment called the police around 6:15 a.m. and provided a description of the suspect who was subsequently arrested.

Andrew Hanson, 31, of Sanford, was found to have active warrants in Maine and was also wanted by Rochester police in connection with a theft from a local Wal-Mart.

Police say he initially gave them a false name. He now faces new charges of resisting arrest, making a false report to law enforcement, criminal trespass and being a fugitive from justice.

Hanson is being held without bail at the Strafford County jail and is scheduled for arraignment on Monday in Strafford County Superior Court.
