BANGOR, Maine — A local transient who had trespass warnings not to be at Leadbetter’s was arrested when police found him there Thursday.

It turned out Daniel Roberts, 23, also had a knife that had brass knuckles attached to it, so he was nabbed for trafficking in dangerous knives and carrying a concealed weapon in addition to criminal trespass, Bangor police Lt. Paul Edwards said.

After Roberts was booked on the criminal trespass charge and brought to jail, a search of him produced the weapon, according to Edwards.

Police had recognized Roberts at the store, and he was taken into custody without incident.

Roberts’ most recent brush with Bangor law enforcement occurred in July of last year, when he was arrested after a fight with another transient, according to BDN archives.

Roberts remained at Penobscot County Jail Friday.
