WINDHAM — Windham police are searching for a man who pretended to be an undercover officer threatening to arrest a resident, but took money instead.

The victim told police on Nov. 21 that the previous night a man came to his door claiming to be an undercover Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy. He said he was going to arrest the man unless the man gave him money, police said.

The victim drove the suspect to a TD Bank ATM in North Windham where he withdrew an undisclosed amount of money. The victim then dropped the suspect off near Lampron’s Mini Mart on Route 115 in Windham, police said.

Police have issued a photo taken at the ATM and asked that anyone who recognizes the suspect contact police at 415-0403.
