The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday night that it has arrested and jailed an armed fugitive following a five-day search.

Randall Lee Marsh, 33, was located and taken into custody by a Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy, the sheriff’s office announced via email at 8 p.m. Saturday. Marsh was taken to Cumberland County Jail and will be appear in court sometime in the coming week, it said.

Earlier on Saturday, the sheriff’s office said it was searching for Marsh, who was wanted on active arrest warrants in connection with a domestic violence assault and refusal to submit to arrest that occurred in Sebago on Tuesday. Marsh fled from law enforcement and had eluded capture throughout the week, it said. Prior to his arrest on Saturday, Marsh had last been spotted around 6:30 a.m. Friday in Bridgton.

Marsh was in possession of a handgun and had made statements that he was willing to take his own life or shoot at law enforcement if confronted, the sheriff’s office said. In addition to the charges of domestic violence and evading arrest, he was also wanted in connection with at least two home invasion burglaries, it said.
