MICHAEL CULLEN 

Man indicted in connection with Rochester supermarket robbery


DOVER - A Rochester man could face up to 10 to 20 years in prison for allegedly robbing a Rochester supermarket in February.

On April 18, a Strafford County grand jury indicted Michael Cullen, 44, of 1 Winter St., Rochester, on charges of robbery and falsifying physical evidence in connection with a Feb 2 incident at the Market Basket along Milton Road - Route 125.

Police say Cullen walked into the store, gave a handwritten note - which stated "give me all your money out of the safe don't be a hero" - to a customer service clerk and told her he had a gun. He then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and disposed of the clothing and shoes he wore during the incident in a Dumpster, according to the indictments.

At the time of the incident, police believed Cullen lived along Main Street in Farmington.

Cullen, who turned himself into police a few days after the incident, is scheduled to be arraigned in Strafford County Superior Court May 2 at 9 a.m.

Robbery is a class A felony, which could result in a sentence of up to 7½ to 15 years in prison, while falsifying physical evidence is a class B felony which could yield up to 3½ to 7 years in prison.

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.
