LIVERMORE FALLS — The thief may have been too hot, or may have been throwing a huge party.

Police in Livermore Falls says they are investigating the theft of 67 bags of ice from an ice chest outside a Lewiston supermarket.

Chief Ernest Steward Jr. tells the Sun Journal that in addition to the stolen ice, the thief or thieves caused about $250 in damage breaking into the ice chest outside the Food City store.

The stolen ice was valued at $75.

The vandalism was reported Tuesday afternoon and is believed to have occurred either late Monday or early Tuesday.
