Employees at the Hannaford grocery store on Union Street called Bangor police at about 5:30 p.m. Monday to report two women shoplifting alcohol, but by the time an officer arrived the suspects were gone.
Store employees were able to give Bangor police Officer Rob Angelo the license plate number of the vehicle the two women got into after leaving the store, and he was able to track them down.
Angelo found the suspects about three hours later at their Bangor residence. Aspen Maquera and Chelsea McLain, both age 19, were each given a summons for theft.
“The bottle of tequila was never recovered,” Sgt. Bob Bishop said, adding both women were intoxicated when found by Angelo. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
