BANGOR, Maine — A local man was arrested for drug possession after he was found banging on a Sanford Street door that wasn’t his on Monday night, according to police.

Police found Percocet pills in the pocket of Marcus McCarthy, 43, of Bangor during his arrest on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear, according to Bangor police Sgt. Ed Potter.

“He was in the right neighborhood where he thought he should be, but he was at the wrong door,” Potter said.

McCarthy was booked into the Penobscot County Jail on a charge of possession of a Schedule W drug, a Class D misdemeanor. He remained at the jail Tuesday morning. (Ryan McLaughlin, BDN)
