CORINTH, Maine — A Chester woman is facing a felony charge after allegedly stealing a handgun from her ex-boyfriend’s residence on Sunday, police said.

For reasons unknown to police, Megyn Voisine, 25, had gone to the man’s house Sunday morning, according to Chief Deputy Troy Morton of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office.

The pair got into an argument, according to Morton, and while the confrontation did not turn physical, Voisine apparently stole a handgun from the residence before leaving.

The man called police shortly after Voisine left, and her vehicle was pulled over on Route 15 in Corinth by Detective Andrew Whitehouse, with State Trooper Brian Bean assisting at the scene.

Voisine was arrested without incident and charged with Class B felony theft, Morton said. She remained in county lockup Monday morning.
