Police arrest man who robbed 2 NH stores following anonymous tip
LEBANON — The man accused of robbing two separate stores in Lebanon was arrested Wednesday after an anonymous tip led police to him.
On the morning of June 3, police responded to an alarm at Twin State Coins & Treasures on Plainfield Road. A window in the front door was broken in an attempt to get into the building.
About two hours later Lebanon Police responded to another burglary alarm at Salt hill Pub in West Lebanon, which is on the other side of the parking lot to Twin State Coins & Treasures.
Investigators found that someone had entered the building through a door police found unlocked and took an unspecified amount of cash.
The investigators also found the CCTV recording system had been removed from the business. The security system was found by the owner of a nearby business and was turned over to police.
Police found a video showing a man later identified as Nathan Kennett, 27, of Claremont, disconnecting the system.
Lebanon Police released still images of the suspect, later identified as Kennett, from the video. Kennett was identified by an anonymous caller using the Lebanon Police crime line.
On Wednesday, Lebanon police arrested Kennett and charged him with attempted burglary, burglary, falsifying physical evidence and criminal mischief.
Kennet's bail is set at $10,000 and he is scheduled to appear in Grafton County Superior Court on Thursday afternoon.
