UNITY, Maine — Police are looking for a man who cut a hole in the side of the Unity Pharmacy early Sunday and stole enough prescription painkillers to fill his backpack.

The man used basic cutting tools to get through the pharmacy’s exterior siding and wall at about 2 a.m. and managed to bypass the store’s motion alarms for about 20 minutes while he stole drugs, according to Maine State Police Trooper Bethany Robinson.

“He was pretty specific about what he took,” she said.

No one was in the store at the time.

The man, whom she described as about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and thin with dark hair, was caught on camera, although the photos are grainy. Police have no information about whether the man had a vehicle.

Anyone with information is requested to call Maine State Police at 624-7076. Callers can remain anonymous, Robinson said.
