FARMINGTON — A Bangor man was sentenced to serve about five years in jail on theft by unauthorized taking in connection to an incident at Renys in Farmington, and for also violating release and probation conditions, on Friday.

Bobbi Frappier, 32, plead guilty in October to theft of $1,243 worth of merchandise from Renys on Broadway in Farmington last July.

He also plead guilty to the other charges.

Justice Michaela Murphy had previously postponed sentencing pending approval of an agreement that calls for five years in prison and two years of probation.

Frappier has 15 prior theft convictions and six prior probation violations, according to information previously discussed in court.

For probation revocation he will serve about two years, Assistant District Attorney James Andrews said.

Frappier was also ordered to serve three years for the Farmington theft charge, consecutive to the probation revocation, and a concurrent 364 days for violating conditions of release, he said.

Frappier was arrested by Farmington police after a Renys employee noticed a vehicle outside the store that matched a description of one that had been involved in the theft of items from other Renys in Northern Maine, Andrews previously said in court.

If the case had gone to trial, Andrews said testimony would have been heard from a store employee who watched Frappier go to a section where Carhartt clothing was located in the Farmington store and put armloads of it in a large garbage can, he said.

Farmington police officer Bridgette Gilbert found the trash can full of clothes under a rack and Frappier’s wallet on the floor, Andrews had previously said.
