BANGOR, Maine — A bag of New York & Company merchandise reported stolen from a car parked at the Bangor Mall on Friday led to the arrest of a Millinocket woman on Saturday, Bangor police Lt. Steve Hunt said.
“She was trying to return some of the items stolen the previous day,” the lieutenant said Sunday.
Tamara S. Lebron, 20, who has a previous conviction for burglary and was out on probation, was arrested by Officer Tim Shaw at around 1 p.m. Saturday and charged with receiving stolen property and violating her probation.
While searching Lebron, Shaw also “found an orange pen that had been modified to be a toot straw with white residue” on it that tested positive for cocaine, Hunt said.
She was then charged with possession of a scheduled drug and taken to Penobscot County Jail, where she remained Sunday.
Lebron was sentenced to a year in jail, with all but 30 days suspended, for burglary in September 2010, as well as two years of probation, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. At the same time she was convicted of two counts of forgery and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, with 10-day jail sentences for all three.
Lebron also has convictions for burglary to a motor vehicle, theft and failing to appear in court, the BDN listings state. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
