By Ryan McLaughlin, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A pair of teenagers were charged with theft Tuesday after a spree that spanned three different stores, police said.

The 16-year-old girls, whose names were not released because they are juveniles, were charged with theft but not arrested, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

Bangor police Officer Jeremy Brock questioned the girls outside the Bangor Mall shortly after 4 p.m., Edwards said. Their spree included thefts from Kohl’s, JCPenney and Deb’s, the sergeant said.

Approximately $200 worth of Kohl’s merchandise was found in the backseat of a silver Audi parked near the Ruby Tuesday entrance of the mall, Edwards said, along with an undisclosed amount of merchandise from the other two stores.

The teens were charged at the scene and released to the custody of their parents, Edwards said.
