On Feb. 3, at about 10 a.m., Cabral went to a business in Lewiston and had contacted a protected party in the above-mentioned bail conditions. Cabral fled the area before Police arrived. A vehicle description was provided. Troopers began to check known locations frequented by Cabral. At about 2 p.m., the suspect’s vehicle was located at a residence on French Road in Oxford. Oxford Police and Norway Police assisted State Police Units with surveillance on the residence.
