HERMON, Maine — A 22-year-old male transient was arrested last week in connection with the theft of prescription drugs from a Hermon residence, a Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office sergeant said Monday.
Tyler Moore, who was on probation at the time of his arrest on Aug. 21, reportedly was seen near the home of a relative the day before, said Sgt. James Kennedy, who conducted the investigation along with Detective Sgt. Bill Flagg.
The theft was reported after the family member noticed that a window had been damaged and that medication that had been inside the home was missing, Kennedy said. He declined to say what kind of medication was taken.
Moore was charged with Class B felony burglary, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000. As of Tuesday, he remained at Penobscot County Jail, unable to post bail set at $1,000 cash or $5,000 surety, a jail official said.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Tyler Moore was charged with Class B felony theft. He was charged with Class B felony burglary.
