BANGOR, Maine — Police are looking for a man who is using credit cards that he found earlier this month. On Monday they released surveillance camera images of him trying to use one of them, Sgt. Paul Edwards said.
“Two of the transactions the suspect attempted were captured on still photographs from the Court Street Market and an ATM machine in Bangor,” Edwards said.
The man is described as muscular or stocky with a brown goatee. He was seen inside the store at about 11:50 a.m. May 1 wearing a blue hat with a blue hoodie. In the ATM image, captured about 3½ hours later, he is wearing a black New Balance jacket with a hood that is up.
The owner of the lost credit cards, a 44-year-old Bangor woman, told police that she lost a bundle of bank cards somewhere between her home and downtown on May 1 and didn’t immediately report the cards missing “in hopes she had misplaced them,” Edwards said.
However, on May 4 she “realized that one the cards was used three times for cash withdrawals, twice successfully,” the sergeant said.
Once she discovered the missing money, she called police. Officer Jason Stuart is handling the investigation.
Those with information about the identify of the person in the images are urged to contact Stuart by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the Bangor Police Department at 947-7382. The department’s anonymous tip line can be reached by pressing extension 6. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
