VEAZIE, Maine — Veazie police are looking for a suspected thief who stole $500 to $700 worth of marijuana from a man who has a permit to grow the plant for medicinal purposes.

The victim, who lives in Graystone Trailer Park off Route 2, reported the burglary around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The resident had about 2.5 ounces of prepared marijuana taken and the plants in his home were “deflowered, so to speak,” said Veazie police Sgt. Keith Emery.

Police continue to investigate the burglary, Emery said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Veazie Police Department at 941-2358.
