ROCKPORT, Maine — Rockport police arrested a Camden man who allegedly robbed a pharmacy on Tuesday.

William Glaude, 30, was arrested at his home on Thursday and charged with stealing Class C drugs and possession of a schedule W drug, said Rockport patrolman Dana Smith on Saturday. He also said that more charges may come on Monday.

Smith said Glaude stole 300-400 Oxycontin 15-milligram pills.

“He’s been in trouble for other incidents,” said Smith. “It’s not a clean record by any means.”

Glaude reportedly went to Kennebec Pharmacy and Home Care and handed a note to the pharmacist on Tuesday. He then drove off in a stolen car, said Smith.

Rockport police were having trouble finding the suspect.

“We chased a couple leads, they went nowhere,” said Smith. “Then we posted a picture from a video of the subject on Village Soup. We were lucky enough to have four people call in.”

Smith said two of those people identified Glaude by name. The star tattoo on his neck was a dead giveaway, he said.

“The star tattoo on his neck — that was one of the key things known by the pharmacist,” said Smith.

Glaude was wearing a hat, sunglasses and a jacket, according to the released photo.

Rockland and Camden police departments assisted on the arrest as well as the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency.

When police knocked on his door, they knew they had the right man.

“He didn’t even shave his goatee,” said Smith.

Smith said Rockport police are still investigating the stolen vehicle.

Glaude was still being held in Knox County Jail in Rockland as of Saturday afternoon.
