Items taken in Charlestown robbery found at NYC pawn shop


CHARLESTOWN - Police say they have tracked items stolen from a Charlestown woman's home to a pawn shop in New York City where they expect surveillance video will help them track down the culprits who tied her up and robbed her.

Police Chief Patrick Connors said a Keene detective, using a database known as Leads Online, typed in a description of the items stolen that led to their discovery in New York.

Connors said he is now working with New York City police to execute a search warrant that will give investigators access to surveillance recordings at the pawn shop.

They are trying to track down two men who forced their way into the woman's home Sunday night, tied her up and robbed her.

Police say the 60 year-old woman had just let her dog out on the River Road home when the two men entered her home. She fought back but the the men overpowered her and tied her up in the basement before taking jewelry, gold and silver coins and bars.

The woman wasn't found until Monday morning when a contractor working on the home discovered her in critical condition.

She had been tied up for nearly nine hours.
