Bangor woman arrested after giving police phony name

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A local woman was arrested Tuesday morning after police were called to Bangor Efficiency Apartments on Hammond Street to investigate suspicious activity, namely a ladder that had been propped up against an outside wall.

Though the ladder didn’t turn out to be suspect, at least one of the people nearby did.

While checking the identities of some of those in the area when police responded to the complaint about the ladder, they ran across a woman who initially gave them a fake name, Bangor police Sgt. Rob Angelo said Tuesday night.

The woman eventually was identified as Candessa Celino, 28, of Bangor, Angelo said, citing an arrest report. She was arrested on a charge of failure to provide a correct name and date of birth to police. She was released on bail later in the day, a jail official confirmed.

Celino was indicted by the Penobscot County grand jury in June on two counts of theft by unauthorized taking and violation of condition of release, according to Bangor Daily News archives.

In September 2010, Celino was sentenced in Lincoln District Court to 30 days in jail for one count of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and to 30 days for a count of violating condition of release, according to BDN archives.
