NASHUA - Police say a man arrested last year for allegedly attempting to steal a horse in Hollis was arrested again Tuesday for taking a Red Bull.

Jeremy Tappan, 27, currently with no fixed address, was arrested on a felony count of theft by unauthorized taking shortly before 7 p.m. after officers with the Nashua Police Department took a report of a stolen Red Bull energy drink from the Shaw's Supermarket on Main Street several hours earlier.

Police were able to identify Tappan as the suspect and, during the course of the investigation, discovered his lengthy criminal record. Because of his prior theft convictions, the theft charge was upgraded to a felony, which is punishable by up to seven years' imprisonment.

Tappan was held on $2,500 cash bail and arraigned Wednesday in a Nashua courtroom.

In July 2015, Tappan was arrested in Hollis after, police say, he was spotted entering a barn on Hayden Road where he tried to mount and ride away on a horse. Police reports from last year say video surveillance shows Tappan, who was known to officers at the time, taking a drink from a refrigerator in the barn and dumping it onto a pile of horse supplements nearby.
