BREWER, Maine — A 16-year-old girl from Bangor who has a criminal history was arrested early Sunday after taking a cab and attempting to skip out on paying the fare, Brewer police Capt. Jason Moffitt said Tuesday.

The teenager was picked up in Corinth and was dropped off at a Wilson Street hotel just before 4 a.m., the police captain said. She owed the cabdriver $40 for the fare.

“The female said she had to go into the room and get the money” but never returned, Moffitt said.

The girl, who was not identified because she is a juvenile, was arrested at the request of her probation officer, the police captain said. She was charged with theft of services. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
