Police Chewing Over Mystery of Man Seeking 100 Cases of Gum
A man with a French accent allegedly wanted to purchase 100 cases of chewing gum in a downtown Havre de Grace business recently.
Havre de Grace police are investigating a suspicious man who allegedly wanted to purchase 100 cases of chewing gum from a downtown business recently.
Police spokesman PFC Jeff Gilpin said the owners of Just For Fun reported a suspicious man with a French accent visited the store on Aug. 2 looking to make a large purchase of gum. The transaction never happened.
The following morning, the store owners reported receiving several overnight phone calls from an unrecognized number. Upon calling that number, the store owners said the man on the other end of the line had a similar accent to the suspicious individual that visited the store.
Anyone with information may contact the Havre de Grace Police Department at 410-939-2121.
