Luckily, earlier today we weren’t grocery shopping. The story has a peaceful ending but I’m sure during the standoff it was a harrowing 4.5 hours. Randolph Nutter, a 45 year old man attempted to steal woman’s purse at Wal-mart on Mount Auburn Avenue in Auburn late this morning. This started the chaos at the Shaw's parking lot on Center Street, which lasted into the mid-afternoon. Lynn and I often go to BJ’s, Wal-mart and Shaw’s to do our shopping. The good news, nobody was hurt and the man was taken into custody and headed to the Androscoggin County jail after getting a check at St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston.
