By Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN Staff

BANGOR, Maine — A man was caught on video surveillance cameras taking laptop computers into the bathroom at Best Buy at the Bangor Mall — during two separate visits — and then walking out of the store with the computers hidden in his clothing.

Bangor Police Department released two images taken recently from the electronic store’s surveillance cameras that show the man carrying a boxed laptop and one of the man’s red- or burgundy-color car in the parking lot.

The man has medium-length brown hair and a brown mustache and is pictured wearing a black printed T-shirt and a black jacket with a hood.

The man “apparently took two laptop computers on two different occasions into the men’s room still in the box, and then left the store apparently concealing them inside of his clothing and driving away,” Sgt. Paul Edwards said in a statement.

Store employees called police on Saturday and Officer Dennis Townsend took the complaint.

Anyone with information about the theft or the identity of the man pictured may call Detective Erik Tall at the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by pressing extension 6.
