SACO — A Saco burglar’s health could be taking a turn for the worse, after he swiped $1,000 in cigarettes and energy drinks Tuesday morning but then lost his bicycle as he fled police.

Police say an officer was patroling near Frodo’s Variety on Bradley Street at 3:30 a.m. when the officer heard a screen door slam at the back of the building. The burglar, who had broken a window to get into the store, tried to flee on his bicycle but hit a ditch and flipped over the handlebars, police said.

The burglar was able to run from the scene and a police dog tracked him as far as Elm Street in Biddeford where the dog lost the scent.

The thief made off with cigarettes and 5-hour Energy drinks but left behind his Zebrano bicycle, the Gary Fisher model, which sells for more than $500 new.
