BANGOR, Maine — Police stopped a group of people at around noon Tuesday and discovered one was wanted and arrested her, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.

Sarah Denbow, 27, a Bangor-area transient, was taken to Penobscot County Jail and found with contraband, the sergeant said.

While she was being searched at the jail, a hypodermic needle was found on her, Edwards said.

The needle was empty but used, the sergeant said. Denbow was charged with felony trafficking in prison contraband as well as on the outstanding warrant. Her bail was set at $1,500 cash and she remained in jail Wednesday night, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
