PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – Police say a home invasion suspect was coaxed into surrendering after several days in the woods with a promise that he wouldn’t be harmed – and that he’d be provided chocolate milk and Mountain Dew.
Police say 30-year-old Michael Crockett Jr. of Buxton was thirsty and hungry – and covered with mosquito bites and ticks – when he surrendered Sunday night.
York County Chief Deputy William King Jr. told the Portland Press Herald that he purchased Mountain Dew and chocolate milk under the surrender terms. Crockett’s lawyer, Amy Fairfield, also ordered a pizza.
Police say Crockett is one of three people suspected of assaulting and tying up the 60-year-old woman in a home invasion last month in Buxton. Fairfield says Crockett, who remains jailed, has an alibi.
