A Winslow man has been summoned on a theft charge after allegedly stealing $400 from the dispenser of a Waterville ATM as a customer was finishing a transaction, police said.

Aaron Rockafellow, 27, is charged with theft and is scheduled to appear in court July 17, according to Waterville police Sgt. David Caron.

On Friday, Rockafellow allegedly stole $400 from a woman at the Camden National Bank ATM on Front Street as she was completing a transaction from her vehicle.

He then ran across the Two Cent Bridge from Waterville into Winslow, where he escaped in a vehicle that had been parked on the Winslow side of the bridge, Caron said.

He said police were able to identify the vehicle with the help of witnesses.

It is possible the victim will be able to recover the money through the court system, Caron said.

He said the ATM on Front Street is generally a safe area, but people should be cautious and aware of their surroundings anytime they use an ATM.
