Police seek driver of stolen merchandise
Police are searching for the man with a truck full of stolen goods who ran away after he crashed that truck into another vehicle Saturday night.
Rochester police say the man crashed a 1996 Dodge Ram pickup truck into a 2010 Ford Explorer operated by Hasan Akisk, 49, of Watertown, Mass., at 9:47 p.m. Saturday at the Globe Plaza on North Main Street. Akisk was stopped at the plaza waiting to exit when the Dodge went off the road and hit his vehicle, according to police.
The Dodge driver got out of the truck and headed off into the woods, police said. A search of the area that included a search dog did not turn up the man. The Dodge contained stolen merchandise, according to police. The truck has been impounded.
Akisk suffered minor injuries, but did not require an ambulance.
Police ask anyone with information on the accident, or the identity of the Dodge driver, to call the Rochester Police Department at 330-7128, the Rochester Crime Line at (603) 335-6500, or text CRIMES (274637). Cash rewards are offered for information that leads to an arrest.
