1 min read

AUBURN — Auburn Police responded to a robbery in progress at BJ’s Wholesale on Mount Auburn Avenue at 7:11 p.m. on March 18, where a white male with facial tattoos had threatened store employees with a metal pipe.

The suspect, later identified as 38-year-old Jeremy Proctor of Lewiston, reportedly attempted to leave the store with a cart full of stolen goods.

When confronted, he brandished the pipe and fled the scene in a vehicle.

Thanks to his distinctive tattoos, Auburn officers were able to quickly identify Proctor.

Lewiston Police located him at approximately 9:55 p.m. near the corner of Pine Street in Lewiston.

Auburn officers then arrested Proctor without incident.

Investigations revealed that Proctor was also the suspect in a similar incident at the same BJ’s Wholesale location on the evening of March 16, during which he wielded a knife to facilitate theft.

Proctor has been charged with two counts of robbery (class A), violation of conditions of release (class E), and criminal mischief (class D).

He is currently held at the Androscoggin County Jail, ineligible for bail due to active bail conditions from a previous felony theft in Lewiston.
