Cops grabbed Williams, who was taken into custody lying prone on the ground, and pulled his head off the ground to take a photo to confirm his identity, according to Maine State Police Lt. Col. John Cote, who addressed the capture photo circulating hours after his arrest.

Early on Saturday, residents near Martin Stream Road, Route 139, Route 8 and the Norridgewock area were asked to provide law enforcement with any game camera footage they may have to aid in the manhunt search.

The suspect had been scheduled to appear Wednesday in a MA court related to a March 22 arrest on suspicion of having a gun without a license. Police declined to say whether he'd been apprehended, or had turned himself in.

Williams was angry about his girlfriend's arrest and had told a friend that "as of tomorrow, I'll be a fugitive".

Williams is accused of shooting dead Sheriff's Deputy Eugene Cole earlier in the week.

State and local law enforcement flooded the region this week, with a particularly massive police presence in Norridgewock, where the shooting occurred.

The search for a man who allegedly shot and killed a sheriff's corporal in ME, is finally over.

Helicopters, cruisers and tactical autos prowled the area, making the area people of three, 500 nervous as scores of cops poured into the realm.


Williams was wanted in the fatal shooting this week of Cpl. He was checked briefly by EMS then taken to the Waterville Police Department for questioning.

This morning about 150 officers were searching in a wooded area where police believe Williams was cornered when a team including Federal Bureau of Investigation, game wardens and local police located him outside the cabin.

It was unclear if Williams has an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Williams will be detained during the weekend and will make his initial court appearance early in the week.

Sheryl Cole promised to Williams that he'd be treated the way her late husband would've treated him: "with dignity and respect".

Williams' arrest ends a phase of the crisis, but an investigation into his alleged connection continues and a criminal trial lies ahead.

He was a member of the police force for 13 years and will be laid to rest on Monday at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. Lancaster calls him an "outstanding employee" and "one of the finest deputies".
