On Sunday, April 21, 2024, at approximately 10:07 am, a woman called 911 from a church parking lot at 213 Federal Road in Parsonsfield to say a male subject threatened to kill her and referenced a firearm but it was not displayed. As the male subject took off in a 2011 Silver Subaru he almost struck a pedestrian as he headed east towards Cornish. Units from the Maine State Police and the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office along with other area agencies headed to the area to look for the suspect. At approximately 10:30 am, MSP Sgt. Daniel Hanson was flagged down on Route 25 in Cornish by a citizen who reported the suspect pulled a gun on him in the parking lot of a church at 37 Main Street in Cornish and demanded his wallet. At approximately 11:19 am, it was reported that the suspect entered the church located at 1006 Pequawket Trail in Baldwin, took money from the offering plate, and grabbed a woman’s purse before fleeing the church without displaying the firearm. At approximately 11:45 am, Deputy’s with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office located the suspect’s vehicle near Bliss Road in Baldwin and began a pursuit leading to Route 107. The pursuit headed south on 107 towards Route 25 before the suspect turned around and headed back North. State Police Units intercepted the pursuit on 107 in Baldwin. During the pursuit, the suspect was seen waving a firearm inside his vehicle. He also intentionally swerved his vehicle at other vehicles on RT 107. Fortunately, no other vehicles were hit and no one was injured. After entering Bridgton Sgt. Hanson was able to utilize a PIT maneuver (Precision Immobilization Technique) just prior to Bridgton Hospital. The suspect vehicle went off the roadway and into a field. The suspect got out of the vehicle and fled on foot. The suspect was quickly located and taken into custody.

In addition to the warrants, McGlone was also charged with 2 counts of Robbery. Additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.

During the pursuit, McGlone was swerving his vehicle at other vehicles on the road. If anyone had close contact with the subject vehicle they are encouraged to contact Sgt. Dan Hanson at 207. 624.7076.
