Sanford Police have arrested a New Hampshire man in connection with a drug robbery from a Hannaford pharmacy on Sunday.

Police in Westbrook and Portland are investigating whether the suspect was involved in similar crimes that occurred the same day in those communities.

Sanford Police Chief Thomas Connolly Jr. said Jed D. Cameron, 31, of Friar Tuck Road in Wolfeboro, N.H., was arrested Sunday by Detective Sarah Roberts in connection with the Hannaford robbery.

Hannaford’s loss-prevention officer followed a suspect out of the Main Street store following the 5:30 p.m. robbery, Connolly said in a Monday news release. The Hannaford employee was able to provide Roberts with information that led her to identify Cameron in a New Hampshire booking photo taken in February, Connolly said.

The news release noted that Cameron is a suspect in a Westbrook robbery that occurred at about 9 a.m. at a Rite Aid pharmacy, but  Westbrook police had no comment.

In that robbery, a white man in his 20s entered the Rite Aid on Main Street and presented a note to an employee stating he had gun, although no gun was shown. The employee handed over an undisclosed amount of drugs to the suspect, who was last seen running toward Seavey Street.

Portland Lt. James Sweatt said that department is looking into a possible connection to a robbery at the Shaw’s pharmacy at the Northgate Shopping Center in Portland that occurred around 3:30 p.m. “We’re going to see if the evidence matches,” said Sweatt.
