BANGOR, Maine — A local woman was arrested early Wednesday morning after police found drug paraphernalia in a pickup truck she was riding in.
Jane Littlefield, 25, whom police described as a transient, was charged with possession of hypodermic apparatuses and taken to Penobscot County Jail, according to Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards.
Littlefield was released on bail after an initial court appearance at the Penobscot Judicial Center, a jail official confirmed.
Edwards said that Littlefield was arrested after city police officers were called to a French Street address to look into a report of suspicious activity involving three people who were hanging around a driveway.
The caller reported that one of the people took off running behind a house and two others, a male and female, left in a pickup truck, Edwards said.
Shortly afterward, Bangor police Officer Richard Polk, who was one of the officers who was sent to French Street, spotted a truck matching the description given by the caller on Broadway and pulled it over, Edwards said.
Polk identified the man and woman in the truck as the pair who had been on French Street earlier, Edwards said. He said the pair said they had been there earlier to pick up a friend.
During a search of the pickup, Polk found a bag containing what he described as a “plethora” of drug paraphernalia, including hypodermic needles, swabs, spoons, vials and a straw, Edwards said.
