Two robberies, two communities, same woman?

Police are trying to figure out if the same woman robbed a restaurant in Manchester and a general store in Derry four days later.

"Obviously, there are a lot of similarities between the two robberies and we are working to determine whether or not they are connected," said Manchester Police Lt. Maureen Tessier.

Last Wednesday night, a woman who claimed she had a gun went into the restaurant about 7:40 p.m. and demanded cash. The woman is described as white, in her 20s, with dirty blonde hair and wearing a gray jacket and pink, hooded sweatshirt. No gun was shown. She fled in a small, blue, four-door car that police said was driven by a woman with long, dark hair.

There were no customers in the restaurant at the time of the robbery and nobody was injured, police said.

Four days later, on Sunday at 6 p.m., a blonde woman robbed the East Derry General Store on East Derry Road. She told a clerk she had a gun in her pocket and ordered the employee to go behind the counter and empty the register. No weapon was displayed.

That robber is described as a white woman, about 5-foot-4, weighing 120 to 130 pounds, with blue or green eyes, blonde hair and wearing a green, hooded sweatshirt under a black North Face jacket, with jeans and sneakers.

Derry Police Capt. Vernon Thomas said surveillance video captured images of both the robber and a blue, four-door Dodge Neon that police believe was involved in the Derry robbery.

Anyone with information about either robbery is asked to call Manchester police at 668-8711 or Derry Police detective Christopher Talbot at 432-6111.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
