BANGOR, Maine — A local transient who was arrested last week at Eastern Maine Community College is in trouble again after police say he stole a pair of shoes from a Bangor Mall store.

Jeffrey Howard, 59, was arrested and charged with theft on Thursday night, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.

The shoes from the Famous Footwear store in the mall were recovered, according to Edwards.

On Nov. 28, Howard was arrested after a messy spree at EMCC, in which he allegedly left water running in a bathroom and feces and toilet tissues on the floor. A campus security vehicle was also damaged.

In addition to the felony aggravated criminal mischief charge Howard faces from the EMCC incident, he was charged with misdemeanor theft in the wake of the incident at the mall.

Howard remains in the Penobscot County Jail, according to Edwards.
