This surveillance camera image shows what police say is a man who slipped trying to flee an Eliot convenience store with stolen alcohol.

The Eliot Police Department is asking the public for information about a suspect who stole alcohol from a convenience store last week.

Police say a white man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, tan pants and pink gloves waited for the clerk at the Eliot Irving/Circle K to go to the rear of the store last Tuesday around 2:20 a.m.

Once the clerk was not visible, the suspect entered, covered his face and stole several bottles of alcohol, according to police.

Police say the suspect dropped a bottle on the floor and slipped while attempting to flee.

Anyone with information about this “slipping suspect” is urged to contact Officer Bill Kelloway at the Eliot Police Department at (207) 439-1179.
