ORONO, Maine — An Old Town woman is facing a theft charge after police say she took a supply of deodorant from a local supermarket.

Eva Pangakis, 36, took the deodorant out of its box at Bell’s IGA on May 30, put it in her purse and slipped out of the store, Orono police Capt. Josh Ewing said.

Even though Pangakis escaped, she was caught on video surveillance, Ewing said, and when she returned to the store on Wednesday, store personnel recognized her and called police.

Pangakis was interviewed and issued a summons for theft but was not arrested, Ewing said. She is due in court Aug. 9.
