A Freedom man who was being sought by police after he failed to turn himself in at a correctional facility last week was arrested over the weekend in Waldo County.

Richard “Rick” Malady, 26, was wanted by police because he had agreed to turn himself in at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset Sept. 23, but did not show up.

Malady was being sought by the Boothbay Harbor Police Department in connection with crimes he allegedly committed in that community. According to a press release from that department, Malady was arrested the evening of Sept. 25 by the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Officer Jared Mitkus of the Boothbay Harbor Police Department, Malady had active warrants for his arrest on charges of burglary, theft, tampering with a victim/witness and violation of condition of release.

Two of the charges Malady is facing, Mitkus said, stem from a burglary of a business called Enchantments, located in Boothbay Harbor, that occurred Aug. 7. Malady is alleged to have broken into the business and stolen a variety of items, including jewelry, glass smoking pipes, bongs and salvia.

The other two charges, Mitkus said, are the result of an earlier assault case involving Malady, who is alleged to have tampered with a victim from the assault case, and in doing so, to have additionally violated conditions of his release.

Mitkus said Malady will not face any additional charges for not showing up at the agreed-upon time.
