WATERBORO — An Old Orchard Beach resident wanted on five warrants was found hiding in a home in Waterboro late Thursday and a man allegedly helping her was found on the home’s roof.

Both suspects were taken into custody by York County Sheriff’s Office deputies and booked into the York County Jail.

York County Sheriff William King said that deputies had developed information that Heather Fields, 43, of Old Orchard Beach would be at an address in Waterboro at about 10:30 p.m.

“At the prescribed time, deputies went to the residence and sought permission from the owner of the property to conduct a search,” said King.

He said Fields was found hiding in the home by deputies and was arrested for three warrants for allegedly failing to appear on a theft charge and another charging she failed to appear on a charge of violating conditions of release.

Bail was set at $400 for those warrants, but her troubles didn’t end there. Deputies learned that Fields also was wanted on an outstanding warrant for allegedly failing to appear in court on a theft charge in Cumberland County and so she is held on that warrant as well.

While deputies were at the residence, they also found Michael Legassie, 53, of Waterboro hiding on the roof, said King.
