Same suspect believed involved in attempted robbery and theft in Derry
DERRY - Police investigating an attempted robbery on Friday and the theft of lottery tickets on Saturday say the two incidents may involve the same suspect.
Police first responded to an alarm at Gibbs Gas on Crystal Avenue around 8:30 p.m. on Friday where a clerk reported a white man had just left after having tried to rob the store. Police say no weapon was shown and the clerk refused to hand over cash. The suspect then fled.
A day later, around 12:30 p.m., Shaw's reported a theft involving a similar man who attempted acquired lottery tickets at Shaw's and then fled without paying for them.
Anyone with information regarding either of these incidents is asked to contact Derry police at 603-432-6111.
