Two Arrested for Collecting Non-Empty Bottles

On March 28, at around 1:20 AM, Jonathan Doyle, 20, and Michael Turner, 19, were stopped by Portland police in the area of Pleasant and Maple Streets. One of the men was carrying a backpack, and the other had a black garbage bag flung over his shoulder. When questioned about what they had in their possession, they said they were “collecting bottles.”

After asking if he could search the bags, the officer found that the two men had indeed been “collecting bottles”; bottles of liquor and wine. Most of the bottles still had pourers in them.

A subsequent investigation discovered a burglary had occurred at the Port Hole Restaurant in the Old Port, involving the loss of what the two men were carrying. They were arrested for burglary and also charged with possession of alcohol by a minor. - Marge Niblock
