While conducting a distracted driving detail Saturday morning, Maine State Police ended up arresting a Saco man who had six outstanding warrants for his arrest.

State police said in a news release posted on the agency’s Facebook page Sunday night said they arrested Christopher Evans, 33.

Evans was a passenger in a vehicle that police stopped for a traffic violation near the Saco toll plaza of the Maine Turnpike. When police asked Evans for identification, he told them he did not have any paperwork on him. Officers also believe he gave them a false name, according to state police.

With assistance from the Saco police, state troopers determined that Evans had outstanding warrants for probation violation, theft by deception, operating after having his license revoked, refusing to submit to arrest, violating his conditions of release, and failure to comply with a Saco Police Department curfew.

Evans was transported to the York County Jail in Alfred, where his bail was set at $10,000 cash.
