Maine State Police are looking for a handcuffed man who ran from troopers Wednesday night in Chelsea.

Police say 34-year-old Jason Langdon was last seen near Overlook Drive in West Gardiner around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, about five hours after his car had been stopped by a trooper on Route 9 in Chelsea.

After Langdon gave police a false name, he was arrested, put in handcuffs and placed in the cruiser, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety. Langdon then bolted from the car and ran into the woods, losing one shoe along the way, McCausland said.

Troopers and a police dog searched the area near the traffic stop with no success, then conducted a second search in West Gardiner after Langdon was spotted by a resident.

Langdon, who police describe as a transient with no permanent address, is 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has brown hair and green eyes.

He is also wanted on charges from Colorado and Florida.

Anyone with information about Langdon’s whereabouts is asked to call police at 624-7076 or 911.
