BANGOR, Maine — A Corinth man is accused of putting a can of cat food in one pocket, a battery charger in another and grabbing a bottle of coffee brandy, then attempting to leave the Hannaford grocery store on Union Street Wednesday without paying, according to police.

Roland H. Keezer, 38, had approximately $22 in merchandise hidden on him when he was stopped at about 5:20 p.m., Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday.

Keezer, who was wanted for an outstanding warrant, was arrested and charged with theft, the sergeant said. Edwards did not know the details of the warrant.

When he got to Penobscot County Jail, “they found Suboxone strips in his wallet,” Edwards said. Suboxone is a drug used to treat opioid addiction.

Keezer was given an additional charge of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs. He was released on bail Thursday morning, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
