    Maine State Police are asking for the public's help in identifying three men who were involved in an armed robbery of medical marijuana plants in the town of Winterport last week.

    The incident took place on Sunday, Sept. 21, around 7 a.m.

    Troopers say the trio entered the property wearing clothing impersonating law enforcement personnel.

    One of the men was armed with what is believed to be a semi-automatic handgun.

    The home owner confronted the intruders verbally, and the three fled from the property with an armful of mature marijuana plants.

    No shots were fired and no one was injured.

    Surveillance cameras on the property showed photos of two of the robbers.

    Police are not identifying the location.

    Anyone with information is asked to call: (207) 624-7076.
