BANGOR, Maine — A local transient was arrested over the weekend for damaging an ATM on Main Street, police said.
Tenzin Shenyen, 34, smashed the machine at the People’s United Bank near the corner of Main and Union streets early Sunday morning, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
When Bangor police Officer Jason Stuart arrived at the scene, he discovered plainly visible finger and palm prints inside and outside the damaged machine, along with what appeared to be traces of blood, according to Edwards.
Officer Eric Tourtelotte of the department’s Evidence Response Team was subsequently called in and processed the machine, and Stuart was able to obtain photographs of Shenyen from the camera attached to the machine.
At about 3 p.m. Sunday, Bangor police Lt. Tim Reid was on patrol and noticed a man fitting Shenyen’s description, and called in Stuart to interview him.
Shenyen was brought to the police station and was subsequently arrested on charges of felony burglary and misdemeanor violation of bail. His first court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 12 in Bangor. (Ryan McLaughlin, BDN)
