BANGOR, Maine — A woman who is no stranger to police was behind bars again Thursday, this time for violating her bail conditions, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.

Ashley Steward, 28, is prohibited from consuming or possessing alcohol as part of her bail, the sergeant said.

Police were dispatched to Steward’s Ohio Street residence late Wednesday after a man claimed she had stolen an undisclosed item from him.

While Steward didn’t steal anything, according to Edwards, police smelled alcohol on her breath and took her to the station for a breathalyzer test, which confirmed she had been drinking. She was arrested and charged with violating her conditions of release and taken to Penobscot County Jail.

Steward has a criminal record, according to Bangor Daily News archives. On Feb. 9, she was arrested for disorderly conduct after an argument with her boyfriend escalated to her yelling and swearing at police.

Steward’s rap sheet also includes an assault conviction in Washington County in 2011 and a burglary conviction in 2007 along with convictions for disorderly conduct, refusing to submit to arrest, violating conditions of release, operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked license and theft.
