ORONO, Maine — Police are looking for a woman who walked into the Circle K store on Stillwater Avenue early Sunday morning and used a note to demand cash and a pack of cigarettes.

At about 1:38 a.m. a woman, described as between 5 feet and 5 feet, 4 inches tall, wearing jeans and a black coat, “slid the cashier a note indicating that she had a weapon and was demanding all of the money and a pack of cigarettes,” Orono police Detective Derek Dinsmore said in a statement Monday. “The female made off with money … and a pack of Marlboro Red shorts cigarettes.”

Dinsmore declined to disclose the amount money taken.

The suspect, who weighed an estimated 115-130 pounds, took off on foot heading toward Bennoch Road in Old Town. Her black coat had white and gray stripes down the sides and a yellow hood, Dinsmore said.

The cashier was not harmed during the robbery.

Those with information about the robbery are asked to contact Dinsmore at the Orono Police Department, 866-4000, or send an anonymous tip on the “Crime Watch” link on the department’s website, police.orono.org.
