Secret identity located in criminal history

BREWER Two people are facing charges after an alleged shoplifting incident at Walmart.

Caron located the woman walking down Wilson Street. Officers Scott Jones and Paul Gauvin made contact with the man, who was later identified as Daniel Tice, 35, of Orono. The woman, who was later identified as Jessica Moorse, 34, transient, initially gave police a false name. An off-duty judicial martial who was in the area informed officers that Moorse had reportedly dropped a bag nearby. Police located the bag, which contained a prescription bottle with her name. Police confirmed through a photo in the database that she was Moorse.

Meanwhile, Tice was also refusing to identify himself to officers, but they were also able to confirm his identity through a records check (his photo was also on file). Both were arrested.

Tice was charged with failure to give correct name and date of birth as well as criminal threatening. Moorse was charged with failure to give correct name and date of birth, violation of conditions of release, and unlawful possession of a schedule Z drug. Her charge for theft was later elevated to a felony due to previous convictions.
