BANGOR, Maine — An Orono woman wanted for questioning in a robbery was found Thursday on Essex Street, and she had two diverted prescription drugs on her, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday.

Mary Folsom, 54, was talking with Officers Steve Pelletier and Jason Stuart who “found pills and other paraphernalia” on her, including painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone, the sergeant said.

She was arrested and charged with two counts of Class C unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and taken to Penobscot County Jail, where she was interviewed by Orono Police Department detectives about the reported robbery.
