WATERVILLE, Maine — A local woman was arrested Wednesday after she clogged a Rite Aid toilet with stolen goods, police say.

Vanessa Cayford, 36, of Waterville walked into the Main Street Rite Aid and grabbed several boxes of creams, according to Waterville Police Chief Joe Massey.

“She took things like Neosporin, scar gel, mascara, eyeliner, blush,” Massey said Friday. “She was taking these items into the bathroom. She unpacked them and tried to flush them packaging down. It plugged the toilet up.”

Cayford hid the cream bottles in her pockets before the Rite Aid staff called police, Massey said.

Cayford was charged with theft and resisting arrest, and for clogging the toilet, she was charged with criminal mischief, Massey said.

She is being held at Kennebec County Jail. As of Friday, her bail had not been set, but she is expected in court Monday.
