BANGOR, Maine — A 23-year-old man who saw someone breaking into his vehicle Saturday night on Fourteenth Street chased the culprit down and caught him, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Monday.
Officer Joe Baillargeon was dispatched to the scene at about 9 p.m. and was told the victim was chasing the suspect up Stone Street. Screaming and yelling on nearby Ohio Street led Baillargeon to where the victim had caught Christopher Beayon, 20, of Kenduskeag.
“The victim was holding the suspect by the shirt and holding up two video games that he claimed he took from the suspect when he apprehended him,” Edwards said.
Beayon, who was wanted by police, was arrested and taken to the Penobscot County Jail, charged with burglary to a motor vehicle, theft and on two outstanding warrants.
He was arrested in December for criminal trespass after refusing to leave a Moosehead Boulevard residence, Edwards said at the time.
In the last year, Beayon, who recently resided in Hudson, has been convicted of burglary to a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of scheduled drugs and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, according to court listings printed in the Bangor Daily News. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
