FORT FAIRFIELD, Maine — Local police are seeking the public’s help to apprehend the thieves responsible for stealing expensive halogen spotlights from a local park.
Fort Fairfield Police Chief Bill Cambell said Tuesday that the criminal activity at the F.A.R.M. Park on the West Limestone Road took place sometime over the past three weeks. The theft was not noticed until Tuesday because the park is not used regularly in the fall and winter.
The perpetrators removed two halogen spotlights from their mounting brackets on the pavilion. Two other lights were taken from a storage area within the pavilion.
The four lights combined are valued at approximately $1,200, according to Campbell.
The park is a significant part of the community, with events such as The County Bluegrass Festival and Maine Potato Blossom Festival held at the facility each year.
Anyone with information is asked to call Fort Fairfield police at 472-3808. They can also call the Aroostook County Crimestoppers tip line at 800-638-TIPS.
