BELFAST — Maine State Police have identified the third man accused of brandishing a handgun at a Winterport residence, impersonating law enforcement officers and making off with numerous mature marijuana plants, which were being grown for use by authorized medical marijuana patients, when verbally confronted by the homeowner.

Police have issued a warrant for 45-year-old Kerry Hurd of Bangor. Hurd is the younger brother of Jeffrey Hurd, 47, who turned himself into police Oct. 1 along with another man, 35-year-old Scott Roberts, wanted in connection with the crime. Jeffrey Hurd and Roberts are both from Glenburn, according to police. They walked into the lobby of the Waldo County Jail in Belfast around 9 p.m. that Wednesday night after learning they had been identified and warrants had been issued for their arrest.

The night the men turned themselves in, police said they knew the identity of the third man and an arrest warrant had been issued. Police are now seeking the public’s help in locating Kerry Hurd, who faces charges of robbery, theft and impersonating a police officer.

The robbery was caught on surveillance camera, and Jeffrey Hurd and Roberts’ faces were clearly visible. Kerry Hurd’s face was only partially visible, making it harder to identify him as the third suspect.
