AUGUSTA — A Waterville man who slipped and fell on ice while fleeing a bank he allegedly had just robbed — dropping the stolen money and a gun in front of a police officer — was indicted by a grand jury in Kennebec County on charges of robbery and theft.

Jason M. Mackenrodt, 37, of Waterville, was indicted by a grand jury Thursday in Augusta.

Mackenrodt, according to the indictment, used force to compel a worker at Bangor Savings Bank in Waterville to give him more than $10,000 in cash from the bank in a Feb. 12 robbery that didn’t end well for the Waterville man.

After he brandished a handgun at the bank, according to police, Mackenrodt ran across four lanes of traffic on Main Street and into a local Chinese restaurant parking lot, where he slipped and fell on ice, causing the money and a gun to fall out of his jacket pocket and spill onto the parking lot. That slip occurred in front of Glenn Lang, a special agent for the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Task Force, who just happened to be in the parking lot at the time. Lang tackled Mackenrodt, and Waterville police then arrived and arrested him.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.
