Fairfield woman faces felony theft charge

By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

WATERVILLE, Maine — A woman who has a history of theft convictions is facing a felony charge after her arrest on Saturday, police said.

Michelle Labrun, 43, of Fairfield is accused of felony theft after walking out of Hannaford on Kennedy Memorial Drive with more than $200 worth of unpaid items, Waterville Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey said Monday morning.

Loss prevention staff at the supermarket observed Labrun attempt to leave the store with approximately $261.84 worth of items, Rumsey said, and she was confronted almost immediately.

Rumsey said Labrun was free on bail at the time of the arrest so she was also charged with violation of condition of release in addition to the theft and brought to Kennebec County Jail. Rumsey did not know the offense for which Labrun was out on bail.

The theft charge was a felony due to the fact that Labrun has prior convictions for the offense, Rumsey said.

Labrun’s first court appearance is scheduled for April 23.
