BANGOR, Maine — Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who left Walmart with numerous DVDs in his backpack.

Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Officer Kevin Haefele responded just before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a male shoplifter at Walmart.

The man allegedly concealed 32 DVDs in his backpack and took off running when approached by security in the lobby of the store. After a brief foot chase, the thief dropped the backpack and continued to run, with the security guard recovering the DVDs, Edwards said.

Haefele asks anyone who knows the thief’s identity to call him at 947-7382. The department’s anonymous tip line can be accessed by pressing 6. printed on August 23, 2017
