Nashua Police investigate latest armed robbery
NASHUA - An armed robbery of a convenience store last night doesn’t appear to be connected to a recent string of robberies in the city, but it can’t be ruled out, a Nashua Police spokesman said.
In last night’s robbery, a man entered the Harbor Mart, at 42 Harbor Ave., displayed a silver 4- to 5-inch knife and robbed the store of an undermined amount of cash. He then fled the store and got into a small, late model car driven by a female. They were last seen heading south on Marshall Street, police said.
After the call was reported to police at 7:38 p.m., more than a dozen detectives and officers descended on the small convenience store and combed the area for the suspect. Police said they were looking for a man in track pants and a hooded sweatshirt. Police cordoned off the store with crime scene tape and detectives could be seen gathering evidence. A K-9 unit was summoned and responded to assist in the search . No injuries were reported .
Detectives don’t believe this robbery is connected to other recent robberies because it involved the use of a knife and all of the others were at gunpoint, Lt. Denis Linehan said.
“We are looking at the latest robbery as an isolated situation, but we won’t be able to know until further investigation,” Linehan said.
Detectives can’t rule out that the individuals involved in the other robberies might somehow be connected to last night’s robbery, Linehan said, adding that they don’t believe the robberies are gang related.
In the last several weeks, there have been a number of armed robberies in the city. Last year’s total of 28 armed robberies, has already been surpassed, Linehan said.
And so far in September, along with last night’s robbery of the Harbor Mart, armed robberies have been reported at: the Motel 6, 77 Spitbrook Road; a Dunkin’ Donuts, 119 Hollis Street; Jeannotte’s Market, 2 Courtland St.
Linehan didn’t reveal how much money was taken in the robberies. He also declined to comment when asked if the suspects made any threats during the robberies.
Detectives continue to investigate the Harbor Mart robbery, adding that the footage from last night isn’t that good. They are working on improving the picture quality and attempting to send out the best possible photos, Linehan said.
To help lead to the arrest of last night’s suspect and those individuals suspected in the other robberies, Linehan said police plan to offer a reward. He said more information should be available next week.
