Hodgdon man arrested twice in one week

By Dawn Gagnon, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine —  A Howland man who was arrested on drug charges and warrants late last month found himself behind bars five days later on a charge of violating his bail conditions.

Jesse James Toner, 26, initially was arrested May 24 after a Bangor resident reported to police that his daughter’s prescription medication had been stolen and that he suspected Toner had taken it, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.

After interviewing Toner, Bangor police arrested him on charges of stealing drugs, a Class C felony, and unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, Edwards said. Approximately 20 tablets each of Adderall and another amphetamine were taken, he said.

Toner also was wanted on a warrant at the time, Edwards said.

Five days later, on May 29, Toner was arrested again, this time because he reportedly was under the influence of an unspecified drug or drugs, which was a violation of his bail conditions, Edwards said. He said the police report did not indicate what kind of drug or drugs.

Edwards said that the second arrest occurred in the vicinity of Chapin Park. Toner was described as sluggish and reportedly admitted to having taken drugs.
