Police seek teenager in Newington ammunition theft
NEWINGTON — Police searched Friday afternoon for a teenager who allegedly stole a box of ammunition after employees at Dick's Sporting Goods refused to sell to him.
Sgt. Tim Stuart said police responded to the store in the Crossings at Fox Run around 1:14 p.m. to investigate a report of a theft.
Stuart said an 18-year-old male customer attempted to purchase ammunition but the sale was denied. When the teenager tried to grab the box from the employee a “scuffle ensued,” Stuart said.
Stuart said police aren't sure why the store wouldn't sell the ammunition to the teenager.
A customer chased the teenager into the parking lot and suffered minor injuries when he attempted to pull him out of a car, Stuart said.
The teenager is believed to be driving in a white Chevy Monte Carlo reported stolen from Hampton. He is described as 6-foot-1 and weighing about 135 pounds.
Stuart said he has no reason “to believe he's a threat to the community.” However, a police radio broadcast described him as “not in the right frame of mind.”
The customer who struggled with the suspect suffered only minor injuries and was treated and released at the scene.
Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is urged to call Newington police at 436-7033 or Hampton police at 929-4444.
