Gunmen rob Boscawen garage

BOSCAWEN - The Bavarian Turbo Technic garage was robbed Monday night by two gunmen dressed in black, police said.

The robbery happened about 7 p.m. at the 182 King St. garage.

According to a news release, a man told police a robber dressed in black, including a full face ski mask, entered his business, pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at him and ordered him to the ground.

The man did as he was told and, while on the gorund, saw a second man, armed with a silver handgun and also dressed in black wearing a full face ski mask, standing in the doorway.

They demanded money and after getting an undisclosed amount of cash, fled the garage and headed north on King Street.

The first robber is described as a 6-foot-3 white man with a thin build and blue eyes. The second man was shorter, about 5-foot-10, with a thin build.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying them. Someone traveling in the area might have seen them, police said, because investigators believe the men were watching the garage for an unknown amount of time prior to robbing it.

Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Robert Mottram or Chief Kevin Wyman at 753-9124.
