CORINTH, Maine — The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a reported burglary early Tuesday at the Neon Pipe shop on Main Street.
The break-in occurred at about 4:30 a.m., according to the video surveillance camera recording.
“They jimmied the door outside, kicked in the wooden door, and came in and took our cash box and left,” said Deanne Kneeland, who runs the shop with her husband, Kevin. “We had surveillance, and they had been in and out of the store before. It’s two locals.”
The store sells glass and metal smoking pipes, vaping supplies, T-shirts, incense, accessories and other items, but nothing was taken except the cash, amounting to about $500, the owner said.
“We are in fact handling the burglary at Neon Pipe, however, we have not charged anyone at this time,” Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office Detective Andrew Whitehouse said early Wednesday. “Our investigation into Neon Pipe is ongoing.”
