LUBEC, Maine — In the 10 weeks this Washington County coastal community has gone without daily police patrols, there's been something of a low-key crime spree.

"Since June, all except one commercial business on Water Street has been burglarized," Lubec resident Mike Pivirotto said in a recent email to the Bangor Daily News. "Compare the FBI crime rate of Bar Harbor to Lubec. Violent crime: Lubec 3, Bar Harbor 2. Property crime: Lubec 3, Bar Harbor 1."
