Bangor woman accused of stealing scented toilet paper holders


BANGOR, Maine — A Bangor woman was arrested about noon Tuesday on charges of violating the conditions of her release from a prior arrest, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and theft after she allegedly attempted to steal two scented toilet paper holders from a Family Dollar store.

After her arrest, Jennifer Poors, 25, was taken to Penobscot County Jail, where she remained Tuesday night, Bangor police Sgt. Larry Weber said, citing an arrest report.

According to the report, Poors attempted to shoplift the items by removing them from their packaging and concealing them in a sweatshirt pocket. The report indicated that the roll holders were valued at about $1, Weber said.

Poors, the report said, was out on bail from an arrest in Hancock County, where she was charged in connection with the theft of drugs from her mother, Weber said.

He said that at the time of her arrest Tuesday, she was in possession of six 20 milligram dicyclomine pills.

Dicyclomine is used to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome by relieving muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract, according to a website maintained by the National Center for Biotechnological Information, a division of the national Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health.
