A man and the woman that he lives with had been engaged in an argument in their Waterville, Maine, apartment on Thursday evening. Near 9:00 p.m., someone notified the authorities about the commotion and police dispatched to the scene.
Upon arrival, Waterville officers spoke with the pair and they confirmed that they had been quarreling, but their demeanor caused the police to believe that something else did not appear quite right. When they asked if they could inspect the premises, the residents gave the officers consent and allowed them access to the apartment.
When police were in the process of exploring the interior of the apartment they came upon a closet door and when they opened it they allegedly found a man hiding inside. Officers began to interrogate the man and identified him as 26-year-old Jared Colby who reported that he was not a tenant of the apartment, but a visitor. Colby also informed officers that he was facing criminal charges for an incident that occurred in 2014 and one of the conditions of his bail is that in circumstances where he is under suspicion he is legally required to agree to search and testing.
