BANGOR, Maine — Two local men were indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury in connection with a robbery last month of the Rite Aid at Union and Fourteenth streets.

Sheldon C. Hopkins, 33, and Darien J. Young, 18, both of Bangor, allegedly went into the store about 7:50 p.m. May 30. Young went to the front counter while Hopkins went to the pharmacy, according to a previously published report.

Each man handed employees identical notes demanding prescription drugs and saying they had guns, Susan Pope, assistant district attorney for Penobscot County, said at a bail hearing for the pair earlier this month.

The men allegedly stole narcotics, including oxycodone. No guns were recovered.

The two were arrested a short time later in a wooded area between Sunset Avenue and the southbound lane of Interstate 95 after fleeing on foot, according to Bangor police. An off-duty officer was at the Rite Aid, located at 556 Union St., at the time of the robbery.

The men remained Wednesday at the Penobscot County Jail unable to make bail set earlier this month at $100,000 cash for Hopkins and at $10,000 cash or $20,000 surety for Young. Both men were homeless at the time of the robbery, according to court documents.

Hopkins and Young are expected to be arraigned July 10 at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

If convicted, each man faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $50,000. They also could be ordered to pay restitution to Rite Aid for its cost of the drugs.
