YORK, Maine — Police said a suspicious man who left a strange object in an outdoor ashtray at the Stage Neck Inn turned out to be harmless.

York Police Sgt. Brian Curtin said the object was a mirror, partly obscured by leaves the man kept placing on top of it. The man was dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt and was behaving in a very suspicious manner, Curtin said.

Officers considered calling in a state trooper and bomb sniffing dog but quickly discovered that the mirror was harmless. The man was found wandering around the loading dock at the inn and was transported to York Hospital for observation.

The stage neck - isn't that where a lot of snobby New Yorkers go for vacation but then complain about how remote the place is?

I was standing in the lobby there once and a New Yorker was complaining to the front desk folks about poor cell reception and that the town of York should build a Cell tower on the cliffs near by.
