Robbery suspects from Seabrook held without bail
Jerry Dow, 22, of 70 Washington St., Seabrook, appeared before Judge Allan Swan for a dangerousness hearing on Friday at Newburyport District Court. Dow is charged with larceny over $250 and armed robbery for allegedly holding up a Newburyport gas station April 12 armed with a blood-filled syringe he claimed was infected with the AIDS virus.
A similar hearing was held last Wednesday for Nathan C. Eaton, 31, of 22 S. Main St., Seabrook, who is also charged with larceny over $250 and armed robbery.
On Friday, Inspector Charles Eaton testified that in a follow-up interview with Dow, he admitted committing robbery, being addicted to drugs and using needles to inject them.
According to court documents, Dow and Eaton allegedly pulled up to a Shell Station on Storey Avenue around 9:30 p.m. in a red minivan, with one dressed in a red hooded sweatshirt and the other in a black hooded sweatshirt.
The gas station clerk reported the suspect wearing the red sweatshirt held a hypodermic syringe that contained a red fluid, and threatened: "Give me all your money. This needle has AIDS in it," according to court documents.
Police were able to track the men down, in part, because the clerk gave police the minivan's license plate numbers.
