WATERVILLE – A Winslow man has been charged after police say he allegedly stole donation bins that were set up to support the family of a murdered woman.
Christopher Hodges, 31, was already behind bars at the Kennebec County Jail for an unrelated probation violation when he was issued a summons for two counts of theft on Nov. 9.
Authorities said Hodges stole two donation bins from Dunkin’ locations on College Avenue and upper Main Street in Waterville.
Those bins were set up to benefit the family of Melissa Sousa, who police say was killed by her longtime boyfriend in late October.
Police say they used surveillance video to identify Hodges as the suspect.
He is due to appear in Waterville District Court on Dec. 17.
