RANDOLPH — Shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday, a man dressed in dark clothes walked into the Camden National Bank branch inside Goggins IGA and proceeded to show a note demanding money and stating he had a gun.

Minutes later, without showing a gun, the man left the store with an undisclosed amount of money and was last seen getting into a white four-door vehicle on Water Street heading toward Gardiner.

He remains at large and the search for him continues.

“Our best hope is that someone recognizes him,” Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland said. The man is described as wearing a dark jacket with a hood, a baseball cap and sunglasses and dark pants with white stripes up the side. Witnesses said and surveillance photos show the man has a beard, but McCausland said it may be fake.

State police say no bank employees were hurt.

Staff at the grocery declined comment Saturday.

The IGA, on Water Street, was robbed a little more than a year ago when a man seeking prescription drugs passed a threatening note to a clerk stating he’d shoot everyone if he didn’t get the drugs. He fled on foot.

Deputies from the Kennebec County Sheriff’s Office, Gardiner Police and the Maine Forest Service assisted at the scene.

The Maine State Police are asking anyone with information that can help identify the suspect to call 624-7076.
