BELFAST, Maine — A trio of men accused of impersonating police officers in September in order to steal medical marijuana from a Winterport man have been indicted by the Waldo County Grand Jury, which rose last week.
Jeffrey Hurd, 48, of Glenburn, Scott Roberts, 35, of Glenburn and Kerry L. Hurd, 45, of Bangor, all were charged with robbery, theft by unauthorized taking, impersonating a public servant and criminal trespass in connection with the incident, which was reported to police on Sept. 21.
Two of the men dressed in black SWAT team gear and the other wore a sheriff’s office uniform and brandished a gun when they entered the property, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said in September.
“The homeowner confronted the intruders verbally and the three fled from the property with an armful of mature marijuana plants,” he said then.
Surveillance camera footage taken at the home clearly showed the faces of Jeffrey Hurd and Roberts, who turned themselves in to police at the beginning of October after they were identified. A warrant for the arrest of Kerry L. Hurd was issued by police a week after that.
Police said the public played a pivotal role in identifying the men, at least two of whom remained in custody two months after the incident took place. Jeffrey Hurd, whose bail was set at $10,000 cash or $50,000 surety, is at Two Bridges Regional Jail in Wiscasset, according to a Waldo County Jail official. Roberts, also at Two Bridges, had bail set at $15,000 cash but no surety.
The official did not have information about Kerry L. Hurd’s current status.
