GUILFORD, Maine — Police were still searching late Sunday for a man they believe robbed a local pharmacy at knife point on Saturday morning.
The suspect was described as a male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing between 185 and 200 pounds. He last was seen wearing a brown Carhartt jumpsuit, sunglasses and a green bandanna.
A Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher said a man jumped the pharmacy counter at Rite Aid, demanded drugs and fled the store. It wasn’t immediately clear what was taken.
Sgt. Michael Gould told WABI-TV that a witness, who believed a robbery was taking place, took off in the suspect’s car. When the man came out of the store and saw his vehicle gone, he tried unsuccessfully to steal two other vehicles in the parking lot.
Gould said he eventually took off in a car that was being used by a mail carrier. The vehicle later was abandoned on Harlow Pond Road in Parkman.
The sergeant, who did not return calls to the Bangor Daily News, told WABI-TV that evidence was collected at Rite Aid and from the stolen car.
