SKOWHEGAN — A Skowhegan man indicted by a federal grand jury in May for allegedly lying to get money from the pandemic Paycheck Protection Program and the Small Business Administration has now been indicted by the Somerset County grand jury.
Nathan Reardon, 43, was indicted for theft of services.
According to court records, Reardon obtained plumbing and other construction work services between August of 2020 and February of 2021 worth more than $10,000.
However, records indicate he allegedly used deception, threat, force or other means to avoid payment.
The grand jury also indicted an Emden man who was arrested after a woman who reported her truck was stolen found herself driving behind it.
Police said 26-year-old Michael Matthew Thomas drove the truck into a ditch and got out armed with a semi-automatic handgun, got into a car parked in a driveway, and drove off.
According to police, that led to a chase and Thomas threw the gun out the window.
They said he stopped the car and fled on foot but was found in a nearby residence and arrested.
Thomas was indicted on numerous charges, including possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, eluding an officer, and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon.
