*UPDATE* Manchester Crash And Run Suspect Turns Himself In
State Police say the man wanted in connection with a chase Thursday night in Manchester and Winthrop has turned himself in.
Steven Black turned himself in at the Augusta Police Department Sunday night. He is now being held at the Kennebec County Jail on a number of charges.
This is the story from last Friday:
State Police are looking for a young man who fled on foot after his car crashed into a tree off the Pond Road in Manchester Thursday night. Earlier in the night, that car was involved in two high speed chases with both State and Winthrop Police. Police are looking for 28 year old Steven N. Black who Troopers tracked along the shore and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for several hours early this morning. The tracks then led back to the Pond Road.
A State Trooper first attempted to pull Black’s car over on Route 202 in Manchester and after it reached speeds of over 100 mph, the Trooper broke off the pursuit. Later Winthrop Police attempted to stop the car along Routes 135 & 202 and officers lost track of the car on the Pond Road. A short time later, Troopers found the Pontiac Grand Am had crashed into a tree on a nearby camp road near the West Gardiner town line. With the help of a State Police dog, Troopers followed tracks along and on the ice of Cobbossee Lake for over five miles. Black faces a number of charges, including operating after suspension of his driver’s license, eluding a police officer and driving to endanger.
