A lot of Christmas presents didn't arrive in the Bangor area thanks to a grinch who struck in several towns.
Sometime between Christmas eve and Christmas morning someone opened mailboxes and stole the contents. They were seeking small packages or mail containing gift cards or cash. Margo Diaz of Alton was one of the victims. She knew something was wrong when she noticed all of the mailboxes opened at the end of her road. Diaz soon learned that a package sent by her sister is among those stolen. The crook or crooks struck in Alton, Old town, Hudson, Glenburn and perhaps in other communities. Anyone who saw anything suspicious or experienced a theft themselves is urged to contact the Penobscot County Sheriff's Department.
Fairfield police are looking for a man who robbed a local convenience store today.
It was just before 2:00 this morning when a man walked into the Cumberland Farms store on main street and demanded money. He didn't show a weapon, but gestured that he had one. It was about that time that a customer walked in and the robber decided to take off. He didn't get any money, but did manage to steal a pack of cigarettes. Fairfield Police say the man was about six feet tall with a goatee. He's possibly hispanic. They believe he fled on foot and are circulating surveillance photos with hopes that someone will recognize him.
BANGOR - While many have been waiting all month to open presents and spend time with family Thursday, others have been looking forward to hitting the movie theater and seeing one film in particular, "The Interview". Sony releasing the film this week to theatres and online for viewers to take in. Hollywood Cinemas in Bangor is one of the only theaters in the state to screen the what's being termed 'controversial' film, although it certainly didn't keep people away.
