CALAIS, Maine — A thief somehow got into the Subway of Calais restaurant on North Street after it had closed last week and made off with an undisclosed amount of money.
Sgt. David Randall of the Calais Police Department said Thursday it appears the individual entered the restaurant sometime between 10 p.m. Tuesday and 7:30 a.m. Wednesday when the store manager opened up and realized money was missing.
He said there did not appear to be any evidence of forced entry.
Randall declined to comment on how much money was taken. “We are still at an intensive investigation stage. I am looking at some other evidence hoping that in the next week or two we will have some further developments on this that we will be able to pass on,” he said. “But right now we are being tightlipped about the investigation until we follow a few leads.”
Randall said he hoped to focus his attention on a “likely suspect” in the next few weeks.
There are reports that the money was inside the store’s safe and it also was taken. “At this point we are not going to confirm nor deny a safe nor anything else taken out of the store,” he said.
Randall asked that anyone who might have seen any kind of suspicious activity in the area of the sandwich shop that night to call police at 454-2752 and ask for Randall.
