A different kind of sexy hitchhiker

Thanks to Melissa, a Mainer down in New Mexico who finds the time to forward the odd Maine article my way from time to time! As she said, "I wonder if the lingerie matched? Also, isn't it a bit cold for that attire?" The original post come from the WMTW-Channel 8 site.
Sheriff: Dude Looks Like A Lady

PORTLAND, Maine -- The Cumberland County Sheriff's Department is searching for a man in women's underwear, a garter belt, black high-heeled boots -- and a mustache.

Sheriff Mark Dion on Thursday said his office had received six reports of a cross-dressing motorist pulling in front of female drivers, exiting his vehicle and modeling for them on the highway.

"The behavior is not necessarily criminal in terms of dress,” Dion said. “But the fact he's jumping out in roadways and apparently targeting females who are alone driving their cars seems to suggest to us we have to talk to him."

According to the sheriff’s office, the first incident was reported in April on the Warren Road in Standish, and the most recent incident was Sunday on the River Road, also in Standish. Similar episodes have been reported in Buxton.

In Sunday's incident, the woman reported that the man passed her and abruptly cut her off before jumping out into the roadway, deputies said. The woman was able to get a good look at the man and provide a police composite.

Authorities are describing the man as a "person of interest" and say he has been seen driving a black sedan and more recently, a red pickup truck. They said he is a white male with brown hair and mustache, thin build, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and in his late 20s or early 30s.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 774-1444, Ext. 2112.
