What's On the Surveillance Videos?

The video of the pickup was not released, but the Sheriff's Office has released two videos that show the suspect who broke into the building. In the first video, you can see the suspect cross the lot, wearing black clothing and a partial face mask. He appears to check the area to make sure no one's around before using what appears to be a hammer or small mallet to break out the door. As he disappears from the shot, you can see broken glass scattering on the pavement.

In the second video, what appears to be the same person can be seen grabbing at least two chainsaws that appear to be leashed together. As he carries one, he drags the other one through the broken door before taking off.

Did the Burglary Suspect Act Alone?

Officials say they believe there was a second person involved in this burglary who stayed with the truck. The vehicle was last seen traveling on the Patten Road towards the fire station.

Anyone who thinks they recognize this suspect or who believes they may have information about the case is encouraged to contact Detective Nathan McNally at 207-753-2566 or email Tips through private message are also acceptable.
