Richard Lee Campbell, 54, was arrested Tuesday evening on Munjoy Hill and charged with robbery of the café Other! earlier the same day. Campbell entered the café around 12:45 p.m. and instructed the cashier to “empty the register” and then to “get down on the floor” and not to call the police. When Campbell left the café, the employee then went upstairs to the office of Maine Securities Corp. where the owner of Other!, Brad McCurtain was meeting with an employee of that company. McCurtain founded and runs Maine Securities Corp. at 15 Monument Square in downtown Portland. (Across from the Portland Public Library on Congress Street.)
Campbell will make his first court appearance on Friday, February 20th in Courtroom # 1 at 1:00 p.m. It’s an “in-custody” hearing which will advise him of the charges against him.
