ORONO, Maine — A man in shorts and a T-shirt running down Main Street carrying what appeared to be signs late Friday night caught the attention of police, who stopped him and arrested him for theft, Orono police Capt. Josh Ewing said Monday.

“He was running away from the Bear Brew [Pub],” the police captain said.

Lucas Kronlung, 20, of Alfred was stopped at around 11:10 p.m. He had two bar mats, both printed with alcohol advertising, in his hands that he had taken from the second floor of the local bar, Ewing said.

He was charged with theft and taken to the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor.

Kronlung was later released, Ewing said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN) printed on August 16, 2017
