BANGOR, Maine — A wanted Stetson woman who put $84 in merchandise into her purse and then attempted to leave Target on Wednesday afternoon without paying was caught and arrested, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Thursday.

Nicole Welch, 30, who was wanted on two outstanding warrants, was seen by store security putting jewelry and makeup into her purse, Edwards said.

“She went through the register to pay for a small item but not the items in the purse, obviously,” he said.

The items all were recovered. Welch was charged with theft and for the two warrants. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
