BANGOR, Maine — An intoxicated man yelling profanities Friday night caught the attention of Bangor police Officer Russ Twadell, who arrested him after a short chase that ended when the man ran into a shrub and fell, Sgt. Paul Edwards Monday.

Jack Fraser, 35, of Bangor, who is barred from drinking by court order, was noticed at around 8:45 p.m. in the area of South Park and French streets. When Twadell arrived, Fraser was facedown on the ground but quickly got up and took off running up French Street, the sergeant said.

Inside Fraser’s backpack were 71 assorted CDs, a laptop computer, various clothing and personal items.

“Upon further investigation it was determined that the laptop and some of the personal items belonged to a Bangor woman whose van was recently burglarized on Center Street,” Edwards said. “Those items were returned to her.”

The CDs and other items remain in evidence.

Fraser was arrested and charged with burglary to a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, violating his bail conditions and obstructing government administration.

“If anyone was victim to any other car burglaries, please report it as we might have some of your property,” Edwards said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
