CALAIS, Maine — Police are investigating a weekend burglary at the local Burger King restaurant, but details are being kept at a minimum to protect the investigation.

Chief David Randall of the Calais Police Department said Monday that a male walked into the restaurant on North Street at about 11:30 p.m. Friday, brandished a weapon and demanded money.

Randall said the male was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and had covered his face.

Other details, such as the man’s estimated age, what weapon he used and whether he obtained cash, were not being released.

Randall said Sgt. Chris Donahue is the chief investigator and was assisted at the scene by the Maine State Police and the Maine Warden Service, which used a trained canine to try to track the robber.

Randall said he expected more information to be available once an arrest is made.
