Robber hits Laconia convenience store


LACONIA — A man robbed the Laconia Spa on Friday and then was pursued by a witness but not located, police said.

The robber, wearing a mask, entered the Church Street convenience store around 9 p.m. He had a knife, demanded money and fled on foot, authorities said.

A witness chased the man and saw him enter a vehicle on Messer Street. The witness then chased the vehicle to Blueberry Lane, where the man fled from the car into the woods near the Timberlake Apartments.

Police stopped a car matching the description, detaining the driver for questioning. The robber wasn't immediately located.

A state police dog searched the area while the Laconia Fire Department responded with thermal imaging. The man was described as tall with a slim build, police said.
