How crime in Maine is different

Bangor Daily News - A Wilton man was arrested Friday night after allegedly using the snowplow on his pickup truck to attempt to break into the Mt. Blue Drug store, according to police.

Police were alerted to the activities of Kenneth Nurse, 62, thanks to two witnesses who were on their way to pick up a take-out dinner, according to a statement from Farmington police Sgt. Edward Hastings. The incident was reported around 6:15 p.m., and the witnesses watched as Nurse’s plow truck repeatedly struck the building near a back emergency exit, according to Hastings.

Officers found the rear door with heavy damage and numerous tire tracks indicating Nurse’s attempts to break into the facility, the sergeant said. Nurse was stopped by Farmington police, state police and Franklin County sheriff’s deputies as he attempted to drive away, and he was promptly arrested.
