Man running with beer draws Manchester officers' attention

MANCHESTER - Police tend to take notice when they see somebody running down the middle of the street with a 30-packof beer.

Just asked Eric Hehir, 36, of Dorchester, Mass., and Craig Hamilton, 26, of 47 Pennacook St. who were arrested after police spotted them about 1 a.m. Thursday running down Chestnut Street, near Pearl Street.

Hehir was carrying the beer, police said.

Officers tried to stop them but police said they both kept running. They caught up to Hehir, after police said he dropped the beer, and eventually caught up to Hamilton and arrested him after a brief struggle.

Hehir had just stolen the beer from TN Convenience, 90 Bridge St., and was trying to get away when patrol officers saw him and Hamilton running down Chestnut Street, police said.

Hehir was charged with theft and resisting detention, while Hamilton was arrested for resisting detention.
