State police are seeking information from the public about a man who might be involved in the theft of a truck from Pond Road in West Gardiner, according to a Facebook post by the state police.

The theft occurred overnight June 28 or 29. Brunswick police recovered the truck on June 30 after it was found with significant damage, police said.

State police now are trying to identify a man who was seen on June 29 at the Wal-Mart in Brunswick, near where the damaged truck was abandoned. In a photo taken by a security camera at the store’s entrance, the man can be seen entering and wearing a camouflage T-shirt and baseball cap.

Last week, police arrested two 15-year-old boys after a series of car thefts that police said caused $50,000 in damage to the cars and to the Litchfield Fairgrounds. At the time, police indicated that they had taken a report of a stolen vehicle on Pond Road but that it had not yet been recovered.

Police are asking anyone with information about the man to contact Maine State Police Trooper Mark Ferreira at 624-7076.
