CAMDEN –– A man wearing what appeared to be a haz-mat suit and a mask tried to rob an armored truck outside a supermarket Monday morning.

Camden Police Detective Curt Andrick said the incident occurred at about 9 a.m., when the man, wearing a black mask over his face and a bright yellow outfit that looked like a hazardous material suit approached a Brink’s armored truck outside a Hannaford store and tried to open the rear door.

The door was locked and the man, who did not display a weapon, fled on foot to the rear of the shopping center on Route 1.

Andrick said police have been assigned to locations around the area and a police canine from the Belfast Police Department was being deployed to help track the man.
