Officers say the call came in at around 2:30 this afternoon. The male suspect, wearing all-black and a ball cap, approached a pharmacy technician and demanded drugs.
The man then fled on foot, in the direction of the Laundry Basket on Husson Avenue.
Officer Jason Linkletter and his K9 would later pick up a scent...trailing the suspect through Bradford Commons, and into the Bangor Gardens.
Fast forward to 3:00: a man fitting the suspect's description was seen running down Falvey Street, where an officer was positioned. That's when law enforcement moved in and made the arrest.
LISBON - Developing news tonight out of Lisbon, as state police say skeletal remains, found there this afternoon, may be those of a Lewiston woman who disappeared last year.
State Police Spokesman Steve McCausland says the remains may be those of 22 year-old Christiana Fesmire, who went missing in July of 2011.
McCausland says the remains were discovered at around 1:00 p.m. along a trail, not far from the intersection of Wagg and Ferry roads.
Just last month, a jury convicted Buddy Robinson of murdering Fesmire. The two had worked together at a Lewiston call center.
Meanwhile, the remains found today will be transported to the medical examiner's office in Augusta for identification.
BANGOR - Earlier today, Bangor Police utilized their K9 unit to apprehend a man who officials say robbed an area pharmacy, and subsequently fled the scene, late this afternoon.
The call came in at approximately 2:30 p.m. The suspect, described as a male wearing a black sweatshirt, black pants, and black ball cap, approached the pharmacy inside Walgreens, demanding drugs.
The man fled the scene on foot, in the direction of the Laundry Basket on Husson Avenue. Bangor police officer Jason Linkletter and a department K9 picked up a trail through Bradford Commons, and into the Bangor Gardens.
Then, just before 3 p.m., a male suspect fitting the description of the robber was seen running down Falvey Street, where another officer was sitting watch. The man was taken into custody, and police were seen gathering evidence at the scene.
"We don't have an account or an amount, or even what it is exactly," says Sgt. Paul Kenison. "But initially the call stated that he did leave the store with some pills and pill bottles, and there were some of those recovered that were on his person."
Initial reports indicate there may have been a note passed to the pharmacist, that implied the threat of a weapon, although none was brandished.
A domestic dispute in Bangor yesterday resulted in the arrest of one man, and assaults on two officials.
24-year-old Anthony King of Bangor was arrested after the department's Bangor Housing Liaison received a report of domestic abuse.
When an officer and mental health liaison attempted to put him in handcuffs, he resisted and became violent.
King punched and kicked the officer and liaison several times, before finally succumbing to arrest after he was threatened with a tazer.
He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and charged with a number of crimes including Felony Assault on a Police Officer.
An additional officer reported injuries during the arrest and transport of King.

While many people are spending their time before the holidays finalizing their shopping, there are some kids who need some help receiving gifts this year.
The Washington Hancock Community Agency is holding its 11th annual Christmas for Kids drive to help make the holidays a bit brighter for children in families that are unable afford gifts this season.
According to organizers, some families must choose between heating oil and holiday treats.
When registering for assistance from WHCA, some kids are asking for just the bare necessities: coats, hats, and warm socks.
To help, checks can be made payable to the Washington Hancock Community Agency with Christmas for Kids in the memo line.
They can be sent to the agency at P. O. Box 299 Ellsworth, Maine 04679.
Those who need help with gifts can contact WHCA at 664-2424 in Hancock County or 546-7544 in Washington County.
ORONO - Just two days after authorities say former University of Maine Black Bear and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his girlfriend, before killing himself, the University released campus police reports, detailing some incidents involving belcher, while he was still a student...and the incidents potentially point to Belcher's past difficulties with women.
According to UMaine police records, released earlier tonight, Belcher seriously cut his hand and wrist back in April of 2006, after he punched out a window in Androscoggin Residence Hall.
Officers reported Belcher did so out of anger over a particular girl. His case was forwarded to judicial affairs, and he was ordered to pay restitution.
Then, in February of 2007, officers responded to a loud verbal argument between belcher and his then girlfriend. The dispute occured after the girlfriend failed to call him at a pre-arranged time. She then asked to stay over, and belcher refused, saying he didn't want to see her until morning.
Officers said the disagreement never turned physical.
