The horse broke free from its corral on Hidden Haven Lane around 3 p.m. Sunday and bolted across Route 3 to a dead-end road and field across from the North Belfast Avenue intersection.

Deputy Chief Jared Mills of the Augusta police said the animal, described in a report only as a horse, eluded its owner, Augusta police Sgt. Danny Boivin and Officers Peter Cloutier and Matthew Estes for nearly an hour before it finally was captured shortly after 4 p.m. and led back home.

Mills said the horse was not injured and did not disrupt traffic on nearby Route 3 and North Belfast Avenue.
