BANGOR, Maine — Police are looking for help in identifying a man they say broke into two vehicles during the Bangor High School graduation at the Bangor Auditorium last week, as well as a woman who was with him when he used a stolen credit card at Walmart.
“We have photographs of a male wanted for questioning in this case who was reportedly with a female [who] was operating a 2006-2009 black Pontiac G-6, with five-spoke wheels, a small spoiler, and possibly had a mirrored-metallic front plate,” Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a press release. “A female operator was only described as having blond hair and sunglasses.”
Video surveillance images released by police show a white man walking out of the Walmart Supercenter in Brewer. The man has short brown hair and light facial hair and is wearing a black T-shirt with red and white printing on it and what appears to be a gold necklace.
The first theft report was taken at around 4:15 p.m. June 5 when Officer Joe Page responded to the Bangor Auditorium and found a vehicle with a smashed window and its alarm sounding.
“The victim stated that he actually received a text from his credit card company while he was in attendance at the graduation and that several hundred dollars of purchases [had] just been made at Brewer Walmart with a credit card he was issued,” Edwards said.
The thief also attempted to cash a check that belonged to the victim at the Camden National Bank in Camden.
Officer Jim Dearing was patrolling the area around the auditorium and took a second theft report from a woman who attended the graduation and said her purse was missing from her unlocked car.
Those with information about the identity of either the man or the woman driver may call the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382, ext. 95736 to speak with Officer Dearing. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by pressing ext. 6.
