A man scheduled to go on trial in Ellsworth for allegedly stealing and crashing vehicles remains on the run. 48-year-old Brent Lovely of Old Town was supposed to be in court Monday, but never showed up. A warrant has now been issued for his arrest. He was first picked up last fall after a high speed chase. Police say he crashed a stolen SUV on Route 1-A in Ellsworth, then stole another SUV. Police tried to catch up with Lovely in that vehicle but say he crashed it, too, off Route 180 and ran into the woods. Lovely faces a number of charges, including eluding an officer, theft and driving to endanger.His lawyer says he was released from the Hancock County Jail last month for a treatment program in Limestone, but never returned when the program ended.
