Hollis fugitive arrested in New Hampshire

Senior Staff Writer

Morin Morin ALFRED — A Hollis man wanted on domestic violence terrorizing and other charges was on the lam for a week, but police in neighboring New Hampshire caught up with him on Wednesday.

Ricky Morin, 32, was held at Carroll County Jail in Ossipee, New Hampshire, overnight as a fugitive from justice after he was apprehended in Conway.

Maine State Police say Morin allegedly made threats to a woman in her home, and previously held her on the ground and attempted to sexually assault her while using a handgun.

Police were called to the woman’s residence at about 8:30 p.m. Oct. 12, according to a Maine State Police social media post.

During the course of the investigation, state police learned that Morin held a felony warrant for a probation revocation charge on a prior burglary conviction.

On Wednesday, investigators learned Morin was at a residence in Ossipee, New Hampshire.

Authorities watched him leave the house and get into a vehicle. When police attempted to stop him in the Conway area, he ran away, police said. He was later arrested without incident in the parking lot of a local business.

Police said Morin will be extradited to Maine to answer the new charges – domestic violence terrorizing, unlawful sexual contact and probation revocation. There was no word this morning on when that will take place.

Morin was also wanted on a New Hampshire warrant for an alleged theft, police said.

Assisting Maine State Police with the investigation and apprehension was the Southern Maine Gang Task Force, the United States Marshals Service, the New Hampshire State Police Tactical Unit, New Hampshire State Police (Troop A-Epping), the Conway Police Department, and the Maine Information and Analysis Center.

Trooper Kyle Wells of Troop A in Alfred was the primary investigator on the case.
