    Dear Criminal:
    Do you know that we have the ability to determine who you are with “forensic evidence” when you either walk into a room or enter a motor vehicle? If you knew what I know you would not dare to steal a dime or a donut. It’s really time that you and your friends smartened up – cause you WILL be caught.

      The only problem with your argument is this: You are using perfectly logical reasoning in trying to have a conversation with a person who just robbed a Rite Aid at knife point and drove off in a USPS vehicle.

      Yes, I understand that. But if I could reach just a few potential criminals before they acted, it is worth the small amount of time it took me to write my comment. I was not trying to save the world.

      Why so many unsolved murders, robberies etc. in this lawless state?
      Could it be that lawless enforcement can’t keep up with technology we are soaked for?

      • Anonymous

        I am writing from memory but I think there are only 16 unsolved murders in Maine. And I believe all or most occured before we had the use of DNA and were astute in modern day forensics. In almost all homocide cases, the murderer is known because of motive but proof beyond a resonable doubt is required for conviction. PS: This State is not lawless, let me assure you. Take a few courses in Criminal Justice at the U of M and you’ll learn to appreciate our law enforcment community – at least the Maine State Police, County Sheriff’s and big city police departments.

      • Lawless state?  A precious Florida firefighter who just came to Maine to visit his friend was missing, which made national news and thus far it appears Maine law enforcement has done a pretty good job.  There also was a robbery in Island Falls of all places the other day and they caught those people. 

        Lawless state?  Not quite.

           A precious Florida firefighter who just came to Maine to visit his friend .  Where did you come up with that Crock?  He was a drug runner.

          • I was mocking the headlines where he is constantly referred to as a firefighter.  That is where I came up with that Crock, thou uncapable of understanding sarcasm.

    Anybody that carries a cell phone can be traced at any point in their life ! Its internal gps system tracks your every move and can be tracked by law enforcement ! And other people with the right knowledge !

      Not true.    Not all cells have gps,  and trac fone and straight talk use whatever towers are available,  Vorizen leases many other carriers towers…….

      • Anonymous

        Doesnt matter whos towers you use, and yes some antiquated phones dont have gps , but not many ! All they have to do is triangulate two towers and your phone and they can find you !

        • Anonymous

          Youve been watching too much NCIS……because the disposable phones don’t have gps.  And if you had a phone that did have gps,  and you wanted to throw off the chasers,  you would leave it in one spot and let them go there.      I’m posting via my phone,   where am I ?

    This is nothing, please just move on. It can’t be very important because the BDN couldn’t even send a reporter or a photographer. Got their news about this from off the TV, WABI-news. What happened to OUR newspaper?

    • Superuser23

      Do you hear that sound? Yes it was a lot like a toilet, that’s where the hard work goes these days, down the toilet. Heck I am not that far, I could have swung by took a few photos and had them uploaded before a revised version of the story was published here from WABI When the Associated Press is not around, WABI is the next place to make up a “newspaper”

    They already know who did this. His butt will be fried. He even threw good clothes and a bandana away. I don’t think he was a postal employee, nor will he ever be.

    There are exponentially more unsolved than solved. However. I give credit when do.
    Thanks for the update!

    Well, I guess since the BDN dosen’t seem to want to update the story, he’s new stuff from WABI.TV

       Thanks for the update jlegere1. The only way we are getting any news about this is through Facebook, twitter and of course WABI. It’s sad, especially for those people that live near where the guy bailed into the woods. He will be looking for shelter and a vehicle. Even if they know who he is they have got to catch him before he hurts anyone. Usually if the public is kept aware they will be on the lookout and help find the crook.

  • is the carhartt jacket for sale?

    You would think these pharmacists would start making the company put in the bulletproof glass.  

    • Anonymous

       Now wouldn’t that be a dumbarse thing to do. Yeah, the pharmacist would be safe but what about all the potential hostages in the store itself. Is the pharmacist going to stand behind his bulletproof glass and watch people get harmed or killed? Only way this works if everyone is behind the glass. It is what it is. No need for hero’s just give the robber what he wants and get him out of the store. No drug or money is worth a human life.

        Well it might be dumbarse to you or people who want to rob a pharmacy, but banks and pharmacies have been using bulletproof glass for years to prevent robberies. I realize the serious risks involved in a hostage situation but if I
        was working behind the counter it would make me feel better. Even the DEA recommends that pharmacies equip their shops with silent alarms, timed safes and bullet-proof glass that separate the customer from the pharmacist. I still think it is a good idea, if you do not then it is what it is to you not me.

           So you think a handful of pills are worth more than a human life. In any robbery the main objective is to defuse the situation and that is by  giving up the material items that the suspect wants. Once he/she has left then the police can do their job. One thing that always help is a very good surveillance system. We have seen a lot of Rite Aid pharmacy robberies in the last few weeks. The reason being, they still stock Opiates.
