WATERBORO, Maine — A diesel pump at a local convenience store was damaged late Wednesday, according to police.

The owner of Lakeside Market told police that he reported to work Thursday to find that the diesel gasoline pump was damaged and inoperative, according to Chief Deputy William King of the York County Sheriff’s Office. The pump sustained between $25,000 and $30,000 in damage.

Surveillance images show that a red flatbed tow truck backed into the pump and left the scene shortly before midnight, King said. The driver subsequently fled down Route 202.

The truck is believed to be an International model that was carrying a Ford Windstar minivan with two mattresses strapped to the roof, the chief deputy said.

Anyone with information regarding the investigation should call the York County Sheriff’s Office at 324-1113.
