    Are you kidding me? They ask “anyone who sees him” to call, but only a vague description and no name? Gee, that description could describe 100,000 people in this state alone, myself included!

    Couple of questions please: What excuse did the man give this elderly gentleman to make him think he owed money for a “civil matter”? How come they can’t name the “person of interest” or some one they want to talk to because he hasn’t been formally charged? They haven’t had a problem in the past naming names when they want to find someone to question whether they’ve been formally charged or not. Why this time? Why can’t they formally charge him if the man can and should be able to identify him?

    ” a white male in his early to mid 20s, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 160 pounds.”

    —That narrows it down to about 100,000 suspects in Maine all right.
    How about this surveillance photo of the suspect:
