BANGOR, Maine — A local woman was charged with felony theft on Wednesday after Walmart store security reportedly caught her stealing from the register she operated, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday.

Lameisha Brown, 21, was charged around 4:45 p.m. by Officer Tim Shaw, who happened to be at the store on another matter, the sergeant said.

Store security told Shaw they had just completed interviewing an “employee who had been caught stealing over $1,000 in cash from the registers over a certain amount of time,” Edwards said, reading from the police report.

After conducting his own interview and reviewing video surveillance tapes, Shaw charged Brown and then escorted her off the property.

“It’s a Class C felony because it’s over $1,000,” Edwards said. If convicted of the felony crime, Brown could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
