Robbers hit two Manchester stores

MANCHESTER — Police are investigating two store robberies that occurred Monday.

The first robbery, at about 4 a.m., was at the Cumberland Farms on Hanover Street. The robber was described as a white or Hispanic male, 18-20 years old, wearing gray cargo-style sweat pants, a gray-hooded sweatshirt, a red jacket with paint stains and brown shoes. The robber also had a black T-shirt covering his face.

The clerk said the robber had his left hand wrapped in a T-shirt and although the robber made no mention of a weapon, the clerk was unsure whether there was a weapon in the wrapped hand.

The second robbery was at about 5 p.m. at Title Loans, at 223 S. Willow St. That robber was described as a white male, 18-25 years old, approximately 5-foot-9, with a medium build.

The robber was wearing a black North Face fleece jacket, without a hood, and a black baseball hat with a flat brim. The victim could not describe the rest of the robber's clothing.

No weapon was displayed, but the robber kept one hand in his coat pocket, holding it in a manner to suggest he had a weapon.

Detectives are investigating the two robberies. A police spokesman said Tuesday they were not able to immediately rule out a connection between the two robberies.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
