BANGOR, Maine — Police arrested a man and a woman late Tuesday afternoon after they stole a bottle of alcohol from Shaw’s on Main Street, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.
Andrew Hanson, 19, and Alicia Perkins, 23, both of Bangor, were arrested at Hanson’s First Street apartment after they fled the store with a bottle of Sambuca when confronted by security, according to police.
Two officers followed fresh footprints in the snow from the scene to the apartment building.
When the officers arrived at the apartment they saw a suspect fitting Perkins’ description. As they searched for Hanson they discovered a large pile of dirty laundry on a bathroom floor, Edwards said, and as the officers looked closer they saw what appeared to be a human leg wearing jeans sticking out of the pile. Hanson was pulled out of the pile, arrested and charged with theft.
Perkins was also arrested because she allegedly aided in the theft, Edwards said. The bottle had a value of $23.24.
Both suspects were taken to the Penobscot County Jail, where they remained Wednesday.
