Man arrested for Manchester store robbery
MANCHESTER — Police charged a local man with robbery after an anonymous tipster identified him from surveillance video taken of the incident that was aired on local television.
Michael McKellar, 53, of 26 Dover St., was arrested at his home early Tuesday morning and charged with one count of robbery.
Police received the anonymous tip shortly after midnight Tuesday, following the broadcast of the video of the two men trying to rob the store/gas station at 1932 Wellington Road.
Police said the men, one barefoot and the other with his head shaved, tried to rob the gas station about 1 a.m. Sunday. The two men entered the store separately, but it was apparent to the store clerk that they were together because they spoke to each other once both were inside.
Each brought items to the counter and pulled out some money, but together they did not have enough to cover the purchases.
One of the men left the store to go back to his car to get more money. He returned and the clerk opened the cash register drawer to continue the transaction. When she did, one of the men grabbed her hands, pinning them momentarily to the drawer. The clerk pulled her hands away, and the man grabbed the cash in the drawer. Both fled they store. They were last seen leaving in a black, four-door sedan.
Police said McKellar is the man who grabbed the cash. Investigators continue to search for his barefoot companion, described as being between 44 and 55 years old, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7, balding and wearing glasses. He wore a red sweatshirt with a white circular symbol on the front with the number “81” and the words “Support Manchester” encircling it.
