Manchester police arrest bank robbery suspect after apparent heroin overdose

MANCHESTER - Police have arrested a woman accused of robbing a credit union Tuesday morning.

Melissa Boucher has been charged in the robbery and police also are looking for Derek Potocki, 30, for his alleged involvement in the robbery.

A warrant has been issued for Potocki's arrest for conspiracy to commit robbery.

Police responded to Members First Credit Union at 44 Bridge St. Tuesday morning for a panic alarm. Officers responded at 9:06 a.m.

Upon arrival, police said they spoke with the bank manager who stated they had been robbed by an unknown woman.

About an hour after the robbery, police responded to 455 Pine St. for an apparent heroin overdose.

The female victim of the heroin overdose, later identified as Boucher, was rushed to the Elliot Hospital.

A police officer at the Elliot Hospital noticed Boucher's clothes matched the robbery suspect's description and contacted detectives.

An undisclosed amount of cash was taken during the robbery.

Boucher was taken to police headquarters after she was medically cleared from the hospital. Her bail was set at $30,000 cash/surety. She is scheduled to appear in Manchester district court on Wednesday.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding Potocki's whereabouts to call 668-8711. Or an anonymous tip can be left through the Manchester Police Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
