Somersworth man indicted for Market Basket robbery in Epping
BRENTWOOD – A man who allegedly robbed a Market Basket store in Epping and crashed his car before being caught by Rochester police was indicted on a felony robbery charge.
Eric Dubois, 32, of Somersworth is facing a single count of robbery in connection with the Feb. 9 confrontation with a store worker.
An indictment in Rockingham County Superior Court says that Dubois handed the clerk a threatening note that read, “Stay calm. Give me all of your money or I will start hurting people starting with you. MAKE IT FAST.”
Dubois fled with $163 in cash that the clerk handed him. The store manager chased Dubois into the parking lot and spotted him getting into a car, according to court records.
The manager got the car’s license plate number, prompting police to issue a be-on-the-lookout (BOLO) bulletin to area towns, according to police.
A Barrington police officer spotted Dubois’ vehicle, but the driver refused to stop, police said.
Dubois continued to flee from the officer until he crashed on Route 125 in Rochester. He was arrested at the scene. Police recovered $158 from the vehicle.
Dubois later admitted during an interview with police that he passed the note to the store clerk and fled with the money. He also claimed that he was going through tough financial times.
Police found other evidence connecting Dubois to the robbery as well, court records say. Police seized a blue, hooded sweatshirt Dubois allegedly wore during the robbery and a piece of an inspection report that was used to make the note. Barrington police brought their own charges against Dubois for allegedly causing the crash. In Strafford County, he faces charges of reckless operation, reckless conduct, disobeying a police officer and driving after suspension.
The felony robbery charge is punishable by up to 3 ½ to 7 years in state prison if Dubois is convicted by a jury.
