ROCHESTER – Police are asking for help identifying a man who they say is a person of interest in the theft of numerous iPads and Samsung tablets from stores in the region.
After asking clerks to show him hand-held computers from behind locked cases, the man looked at them before running out the door of stores in Greenland, Newington, Rochester and Somersworth in New Hampshire and in Biddeford and South Portland in Maine, according to police.
Police believe the man has struck stores in other communities as well.
Any retailers interested in gaining access to RetailersLink.com – which provides more information about retail crimes, ongoing trends, arrests and other details – should contact Officer Tracy Hayes at 330-7111 or email her at Tracy.Hayes@RochesterNH.net.
Using surveillance footage, which includes images of the man with facial hair and more recently clean-shaven, police hope residents can provide more information about his identity, whereabouts or other activities.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Rochester Police at 330-7127. To place an anonymous tip, use the Rochester Crimeline at 335-6500 or submit one via text at CRIMES (274637) by typing Text4Cash in the body along with the tip. Tips leading to an arrest could result in a cash reward.
