BANGOR, Maine — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding an alleged Sears shoplifter who worked with another man, who may be his brother, to get away, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a press release Thursday.
The duo was caught by video surveillance cameras Monday afternoon shopping at Sears at the Bangor Mall. One of the men left the store, and a few minutes later, a vehicle pulled up at the doors.
The other man “took a pair of jeans and bolted for the car,” Edwards said.
Police released a picture of the man who allegedly took the jeans. He is described as a white, heavyset man with a shaved head, possibly a goatee or other brown facial hair, and a tattoo on his right arm.
“The second person is smaller than the suspect pictured, and apparently both men were witnessed shopping at several stores within the mall,” Edwards’ release states. “At one point, the smaller suspect … made reference that the two were brothers.”
Lt. Steve Hunt said Friday morning that no arrests had been made.
Those with information about the investigation may call Officer Mike Brennan at the Bangor Police Department, 947-7382, ext. 95756. The department’s anonymous tip line may be reached by pressing ext. 6.
