BREWER, Maine — A Bangor man staying at a friend’s house while she was away signed for prescription drugs delivered to her Brewer home last week and was later arrested, Brewer police Lt. Jason Moffitt said Tuesday.
Peter J. Pelletier II, 31, was arrested at around 9 p.m. Thursday for stealing drugs and for violating his bail conditions, the lieutenant said.
The woman called police at about 7 p.m. that day saying Pelletier signed for her prescriptions and took them, Moffitt said.
“He said he would give them back on Saturday,” the lieutenant said.
Pelletier was taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor and remained in jail on Tuesday, a jail official said.
Bangor police arrested Pelletier in May after Ohio Street residents reported him staggering down the street and he was found with a diverted anti-anxiety drug, Klonopin, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said at the time. He was charged with unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and violating his bail conditions.
Pelletier has a number of convictions on his record over the last eight years, including theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, violating conditions of release, and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants, with a suspended license, and after habitual offender revocation, according to court listings in the Bangor Daily News.
