WATTERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Police say they arrested a Maine man for allegedly trying on two rings in a jewelry store and running out of the store without removing them.

The Waterville Police Department said Tuesday 34-year-old Kevin Barr of Waterville was being charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief.

Police alleged that on April 15 Barr entered L Tardif Jeweler in Waterville and tried on several expensive rings before selecting two of them and running out the door. The rings had a combined value of $5,000.

Barr turned himself in to police Sunday. He was taken to Kennebec County Jail with a court date of June 17. Bail was set at $2,130 and had not been posted. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
