Impersonating police, two men invade disabled man's Rochester home

ROCHESTER – Two men, one armed with a gun, pretended to be Rochester police officers to gain entry into a disabled man's home Thursday night and steal his prescription drugs, police said.

The incident happened just before 10 p.m. at 312 Portland St. The resident told police two men claiming to be police knocked on his door and, because he requires a wheelchair and could not see who was outside, he opened the door.

The two men immediately demanded prescription drugs and ransacked the older man's home in a search for them, the resident said.

Neither man wore a uniform or had police gear, but one was armed with a small handgun.

The man was not injured in the incident.

One of the intruders is described as a 5-foot-10 white man in his 30s, weighing 135 pounds. He wore a hooded gray jacket, brown shorts and dark shoes and black rimmed eyeglasses.

The second man, who had his face covered by a gray hooded sweatshirt, was between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, according to police.

After locating an undisclosed quantity of drugs, the two men left on foot, according to police.

Members of the N.H. State Police K9 team responded, but officers were unable to track down the robbers.

Anyone with information on this robbery is encouraged to contact Detective Robert Frechette, with the Rochester Police Department at (603) 330-7172.
