WINTERPORT, Maine (AP) — Authorities say three men disguised as police officers, including one brandishing a handgun, robbed a Winterport man of his medical marijuana.

The three suspects wore clothing that included dark SWAT-style vests and a shirt that said “sheriff’ on the front.

The men were captured on surveillance video during the robbery, which occurred last week. Authorities released the surveillance images on Monday hoping someone might recognize the suspects.

The homeowner challenged the intruders, who left the property with an armful of mature marijuana plants.

No shots were fired and no one was hurt.

Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland says the police clothing is easily found online.
