ROCKLAND, Maine — A Rockland man remains in jail after being arrested Sunday in the theft of a 1990 Volvo from the Hanna-ford parking lot.

Nathan McClure, 28, was arrested Sunday evening in Un-ion and later booked at Knox County Jail for unauthorized use of property along with two prior charges.

Officer Larry Muldoon of the Rockland Police Department said he was dispatched to the Hannaford store just after 8 p.m. Sunday on a report of an automobile theft.

While Muldoon was en route, the dispatcher told him a Knox County deputy was attempting to stop a car that matched the description of the vehicle stolen from Hannaford.

Muldoon said that on his arrival he spoke with Kimberly Sampson, who told him she had parked her car in the Hanna-ford parking lot at about 7:30 p.m. She said she did not lock the doors and had left the keys either on the front seat or in the ignition.

Sampson said when she returned to the parking lot at about 7:55 p.m., the car was gone.

Muldoon said he later was told that the Knox County Sheriff’s Office stopped the Volvo in Union and arrested McClure, the driver and sole occupant, on unrelated charges.

The vehicle was returned to Sampson without damage.
