Police allege shoplifters made their getaway on a bicycle built for two
MANCHESTER – Two men accused of stealing liquor from a state liquor store tried to pedal their way to freedom on a bicycle built for two but were quickly captured, police said.
Police were called to the New Hampshire State Liquor Store at 333 Lincoln St. about 12:40 p.m. Wednesday for a pair of shoplifters.
One man was recorded on surveillance putting a $20 bottle of Kahlua down his pants, while another was seen putting a $1.99 bottle of Courvoisier into a pocket of his pants.
A witness followed the men out of the store and saw them get onto a tandem bicycle and pedal away.
The witness told Officer Neal Penttinen, who was working a detail nearby, about the theft and he spotted the bicycle heading down an alley.
He pointed patrol officer Walter Feldhouse in the direction where the men had gone, and Feldhouse caught up and arrested the pair, identified as Jonathan LaVoie, 32, of 42 School St., and Jay Bingel, 33, of 118 Third St., both of Manchester.
Police said LaVoie allegedly ditched the bottle of Kahlua as Feldhouse closed in. Bingel still had the Courvoisier in his pocket, police said.
Both were arrested for theft. Lavoie is also charged with falsifying physical evidence.
