Island police: Arrest made in thefts


Amy Myers of Bar Harbor has been arrested on theft charges.

BAR HARBOR — A Bar Harbor woman was arrested Saturday on theft charges after allegedly stealing money from a Main Street shop.

Police said Amy Myers, 43, was in the store on Friday and got the store clerk away from the counter by asking questions about merchandise. While the clerk was distracted, Myers allegedly went behind the counter and removed a bank bag containing around $200.

At the time of Myers’ arrest, police were able to tie her to a similar incident that occurred in August. Police allege that on Aug. 15, Myers was in a Mount Desert Street business, and while the clerk was distracted, went behind the counter and took cash and credit cards from a purse. The clerk gave a good description of Myers, which enabled police to tie her to the theft.

Myers had previously been arrested by police here on Oct. 30 on a warrant for failure to appear for a theft charge in Ellsworth. At the time of her arrest Friday, she was wanted on yet another warrant related to a theft in Ellsworth.

Myers was charged with two counts of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and was charged with violating the conditions of her release. The theft charges are considered felony level Class C because of prior convictions. They are each punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine. Myers was taken to Hancock County Jail and subsequently released on bail.
