Police say man robbed Londonderry clerk using a syringe


LONDONDERRY - Police are still searching for a man who threatened a Londonderry gas station clerk with a syringe, robbed the store, and fled the scene on foot Tuesday night.

Shortly after 8 p.m., Londonderry Police received a 911 call from a clerk at the Route 102 Gas & Service station reporting the store had just been robbed, according to Lt. Tim Jones.

Derry Police and several state police troopers along with several K-9 units began searching the area for the man, described as white, between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall, with medium build and a scruffy beard. Witness reports said the robber, who appeared to be wearing a green hat and a blue, hooded sweatshirt, fled behind the store and was last seen running toward Ela Avenue.

The pursuit led Londonderry K-9 officer John Perry and his dog, Mingo, on a trail down Ela Avenue, where each yard was searched. A resident reported an unsecured bulkhead door at one of the neighborhood homes, but a search of the property revealed no sign of the man.

Jones said the incident remains under investigation as of Wednesday morning.
