CORINTH, Maine — A man allegedly responsible for robbing a Corinth bank remained at large Friday, but police are hoping an identification of his possible getaway vehicle and bank surveillance images will be a break in the case leading to his capture.

Police late Thursday evening released multiple surveillance images of the suspect, which show him approaching the bank’s counter and walking away from the facility.

The robber did not use any weapons in Thursday morning’s robbery of Camden National Bank on Main Street, and did not make any threatening remarks to tellers, but did escape with an undisclosed amount of money.

The vehicle of interest the suspect may have been driving or riding in is described by police as a bright yellow, “sporty looking” compact car, according to Detective William Flagg.

The car also may have a fin on its trunk, the detective said.

Flagg said the vehicle was spotted traveling in the area of Route 43 between 8 and 9:15 a.m. The robbery was reported shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday. The bank is located at the intersection of Routes 15, 43 and 11 in the center of Corinth.

The vehicle was believed to have been traveling slowly between Route 43 and Puddledock Road, and the suspect was last seen running toward Hudson Road, also Route 43, near Morrison Avenue, Flagg said.

The suspect is a white male standing between 5-foot-6 and 5-feet-8-inches’ tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a dark hooded jacket with a gray hooded sweatshirt underneath, a black ski mask, jeans and green sunglasses.

Anybody with information on the man’s whereabouts or the vehicle of interest should contact Flagg at 947-4585.
