By Judy Harrison, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — Two men charged with robbing separately the same Rite Aid pharmacy a week apart were indicted Wednesday by the Penobscot County grand jury.

Jeffrey M. Macy, 46, of Eastbrook was indicted on charges of robbery, criminal operating under the influence, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, aggravated criminal mischief and refusing to submit to arrest in connection with the Sept. 29 robbery of the Rite Aid at Union and Fourteenth streets in Bangor.

Macy was arrested on the 18th hole of Bangor Municipal Golf Course, where he had fled in a 1995 gold Pontiac Bonneville, according a previous report.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 13.

John D. Harmon Jr., 27, of Dover-Foxcroft was indicted on charges of robbery and unlawful possession of scheduled drugs in connection with the Oct. 7 robbery of the same Rite Aid. He was arrested a little more than an hour after the pharmacy was robbed.

Harmon at first denied committing the robbery, according to a previous report. He later allegedly admitted being the robber but said he was forced to do it to pay off a $7,500 drug debt.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 6.

Macy and Harmon remained Wednesday at the Penobscot County Jail unable to make bail set at at $50,000 cash or $200,000 surety, and $50,000 cash or $100,000 surety, respectively.

John C. Campbell, 35, of Brewer, who has been charged in connection with a robbery at the Brewer Rite Aid and a pharmacy at a Hannaford Supermarket in Bangor on Sept. 29 was not indicted Wednesday.

Michael Roberts, deputy district attorney for Penobscot County, said Wednesday that Campbell’s case most likely would be presented to the grand jury on Nov. 28.
