TILTON – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who robbed a local convenience store at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon.
Police received a call that there was an armed robbery in progress at 3:30 p.m. at the Tilton Shop Express at 622 Laconia Road, according to Police Chief Robert Cormier.
