FREEPORT, Maine — Police on Thursday released the names of the man and woman involved in a car crash on Interstate 295 in Freeport Wednesday afternoon after a pharmacy robbery in Yarmouth.

Dylan Libby, 21, and his passenger, 18-year-old Madeline Damon, both of Bangor, were both listed in fair condition at Maine Medical Center Thursday morning, according to a nursing supervisor at the hospital.

Libby and Damon both recently moved to Bangor from North Yarmouth, according to a release from Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Police have not yet filed charges in connection to Wednesday’s robbery — the third pharmacy robbery in Yarmouth since December — but expect to do so “in the near future,” McCausland said.

Just after 3 p.m. Wednesday, the pharmacy of the Yarmouth Rite Aid on Route 1 was robbed and a male and female suspect fled northbound on I-295 in a black Mitsubishi, Freeport Police Chief Gerald Schofield said at the scene.

A high-speed chase ensued, and the vehicle crashed on the offramp at Exit 22 and ended up in a ditch, police said.

A Maine State Police canine and handler searched the area around the crash.

The on- and offramps at Exit 22 northbound were shut down for several hours.

The robbery was the third pharmacy robbery in Yarmouth since December.

On December 19, 2012, $5,000 worth of drugs from the Hannaford Bros. pharmacy in Yarmouth was reported stolen.

Two days later, a man stole “synthetic narcotics” from the Yarmouth Rite Aid, The Forecaster reported.

Yarmouth Police Chief Michael Morrell declined to say what was stolen on Wednesday. No further information was immediately available.
