BANGOR, Maine — A 39-year-old Kenduskeag woman was arrested Wednesday night on a theft charge after she allegedly shoplifted clothing and accessories from the Sears department store at the Bangor Mall.
When confronted by the store’s loss prevention employees, Shari Nakai-Lombardi reportedly was wearing some of clothing she stole as the employees watched and recorded her, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday, citing an arrest report submitted by Bangor police Officer Kevin Murphy.
The report indicated that Nakai-Lombardi also concealed merchandise in her purse during the two hours she was in the store.
Murphy reportedly recovered several stolen items from the suspect’s purse and with the help of a female Sears employee also recovered the stolen clothing she was wearing.
After her arrest, Nakai-Lombardi was taken to Penobscot County Jail, where a corrections officer also found a pair of earrings and a leather wallet belonging to Sears in her possession. The items were returned to the store.
