TOPSHAM — Topsham police charged a Bath man they say stole more than $400 worth of cigarettes from a business in the Topsham Fair Mall last Saturday.

The suspect wasn’t working alone, according to police.

Lt. Christopher Lewis said Darrell White II, 24, of Lincoln St., Bath, was summonsed for theft at the police station Tuesday at 3:31 p.m.

White allegedly took six cartons of cigarettes worth $413 from the Maine Smoke Shop on Dec. 31. White returned Tuesday and the clerk recognized him from security footage.

Lewis said the footage shows White loading his pockets with cartons while an accomplice distracted the clerk. Police continue to investigate the theft and work to identify whoever accompanied White.

Lewis said Thursday it is possible more charges could be filed against White, and whoever helped him.
