WATERVILLE — An 18-year-old Palermo man was released early Monday from the Kennebec County Correctional Facility in Augusta after he led Waterville police on a high-speed chase Saturday night through residential neighborhoods, before being stopped and arrested.

Robert Conlogue was driving a 2018 Volkswagen Passat with no registration plates at what is considered criminal speeding — 30 mph or more over the speed limit — when Sgt. Haley Fleming tried to stop Conlogue’s car on College Avenue at 9:48 p.m. Saturday, according to Maj. Jason Longley of the Waterville Police Department.

Longley said Conlogue did not stop his vehicle and, instead, led police on a chase that lasted about 10 minutes, from College Avenue to the city’s South End, at speeds that reached about 85 mph, but were mostly in the 50 to 60 mph range.

Longley wrote in an email Monday that a map of the chase might not be available for a couple of days, but the police pursuit included a number of streets, including College Avenue, Oak Street, Drummond Avenue, Silver Street, Spring Street, Sherwin Street, Water Street, Johnson Heights, Roosevelt Avenue and Eustis Parkway.

College Avenue runs from the north end of the city to downtown. Oak Street intersects with College Avenue, across from the railroad yard, and then intersects with Main Street, near Eustis Parkway, Johnson Heights and Roosevelt Avenue. Main Street extends south all the way to Water Street in the city’s South End, where the chase ended.

“A Waterville officer was able to successfully deploy spike strips at the intersection of Main Street and High Street, deflating the two driver’s side tires of the suspect vehicle,” Longley wrote in the email. “With the tires deflated, the suspect later came to a stop in the VFW parking lot on Water Street where the driver was taken into custody.”

Longley said Conlogue was arrested and charged with driving to endanger, eluding an officer, aggravated reckless conduct, criminal speed 30-plus mph over the speed limit, criminal restraint, operating an unregistered vehicle and minor transporting liquor.

Conlogue is scheduled to appear Aug. 19 at Kennebec County Superior Court in Augusta, Longley said.

A jail spokesman said late Monday morning that Conlogue had been released at 12:38 a.m. Monday after posting $4,000 bail.
