Two Bangor women were charged with theft after they allegedly tried to leave a Bangor Hannaford supermarket Saturday afternoon with a cart containing $605 in groceries, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

According to a police report, Tracey Cammack, 30, and Takieena Arnold, 25, were cooperative when confronted by the store’s loss prevention personnel and police. Neither woman was arrested, Edwards said. An itemized list of the groceries was unavailable. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)

A 35-year-old Bangor man was taken to Penobscot County Jail on Monday morning after he was charged with false public alarm or report.

Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Raymond Mallory was accused of “abusing the 911 system.” He said Mallory called 911 asking for assistance but would not say what his problem was. When he called 911 a second time, police went to his residence and arrested him, Edwards said.

Mallory remained in Penobscot County Jail late Tuesday night. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)

Two people who said they were from Portland were arrested in Bangor on Monday night after city police were called to investigate a report of a family fight at a Court Street residence.

When Officers Taylor Bagley and Ryan Jones arrived shortly before 11 p.m., several people who had been arguing had separated, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a news release issued Tuesday.

During the subsequent investigation, the officers learned that Anthony W. Teabout, 41, and Crystal O. Babcock, 20, were arguing with a tenant about property, Edwards said.

While the officers were trying to gather information, both Babcock and Teabout became aggressive and disorderly, Edwards said. The two were arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Teabout, who police determined had a Vassalboro address, was charged with domestic violence assault. Teabout, who has been deemed a habitual offender, had an active warrant out of Cumberland County for aggravated operating after suspension as a habitual offender, eluding a police officer and speeding 30 mph more than the speed limit, as well as a warrant for $130 in unpaid fines stemming from an operating after suspension conviction.

Teabout since has been transferred to the Cumberland County Jail, where he was being held Tuesday night on the warrants, Edwards said.

Babcock, who police said had a Bangor address, was charged with disorderly conduct. She was released on bail Tuesday night. (Dawn Gagnon, BDN)
