LISBON, Maine (AP) – Maine police have arrested a man wanted by authorities in Colorado on charges of sexual exploitation of a child.

Police in Lisbon acting on information from the Maine Computer Crimes Task Force arrested 48-year-old Scott Helms on a fugitive from justice charge this week.

Police say Helms is wanted by the Gilpin County Sheriff’s Office on three felony counts of Internet sexual exploitation of a child and two felony counts of attempted sexual exploitation of a child.

Helms appeared Wednesday in district court in Lewiston and was held on $10,000 cash bail.

Police say Helms has lived in Lisbon for several years. They did not disclose the exact nature of the alleged offenses.

It was not clear if he had hired a lawyer.
