BANGOR, Maine — Officers Kyle Pelkey and Richard Polk were investigating a parking problem on West Street about 3 a.m Saturday when they noticed three girls cross the street in an attempt to avoid them.

One of the girls dropped a purse and the officers called after them but they didn’t respond, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said on Monday.

When the officers approached the 15-year-old who dropped the bag, “she basically said, ‘Ain’t my bag,’” Edwards said. “The other two girls went inside” a nearby residence.

The only thing in the bag was a half gallon of vodka. The teenager, who was heading over to her friend’s house to spend the night, was charged with illegal possession of liquor by a minor. The other two girls were not charged. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
