BANGOR, Maine — A 20-year-old Bangor man was arrested Saturday night after police were called to High Street to look into a report of a disturbance.

When they arrived, they reportedly found John Devine Jr., whom police described as a transient, had been disorderly and were told that he allegedly threatened a woman.

Officers also found him in possession of a concealed weapon, specifically a knife in a sheath attached to his belt, Roach said.

Devine was charged with disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon and then taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Devine was arrested last November after he allegedly walked out of Shaw’s supermarket on Main Street with a cart of items he had not paid for. At that time, he was arrested on charges of theft and violating the conditions of his release from a prior arrest, according to story recently published by the Bangor Daily News.
