Claremont store robber sought in Friday holdup


CLAREMONT — Police continue to hunt for the man who robbed Jiffy Mart on Friday night, making off with an undisclosed amount of money.

The man, who was wearing a hat or hoodie with ski goggles, told the store clerk he had a gun, though no gun was shown, police said.

He was wearing tan pants, a tan jacket, and a pink scarf when he entered the Maple Avenue store at about 8:40 p.m. He was described as a white male between 5'8" and 5'10".

After fleeing the store, he ran behind the Hitching Post restaurant, police said.

With a search dog from New Hampshire State Police, investigators found possible DNA evidence.

Claremont police ask anyone with information about the crime to call the police department at 542-9538.
