CUSHING, Maine — A pickup truck stolen on Saturday may be connected to the escape last weekend of two convicts from the Bolduc Correctional Facility in Warren, Knox County Sheriff Donna Dennison said Tuesday.
“The truck was close to where the prison farm is,” she said. “There’s a chance it’s connected to the escapes.”
The stolen truck is a maroon, 1997 Chevrolet C-15 that has two “hood scoops,” aluminum wheels and black paint on its lower body, Dennison said. The keys had been left inside the truck, she said.
Inmates Arden Shaw, 36, and Robert Fogg, 28, last were seen at the minimum-security Bolduc facility at about 7 p.m. Saturday. Both men were in prison for burglary and due to be released in 2013.
The two men had not been apprehended by midday Tuesday. Authorities have said that neither is a violent offender.
Anyone who spots the truck should call the Knox County Sheriff’s Office at 594-5656, Dennison said.
