Epping police chief says of store clerk's death, 'If there are any charges we can increase or bring forward...we will'
"I can tell you this, and I can assure you, from the very beginning we have taken the necessary steps to make sure if there are any charges that we can increase or bring forward … we will," he told selectmen.
Jeffrey Seymore, 27, of Manchester, was charged with theft after allegedly stealing four cartons of cigarettes from the store on Christmas Eve. He was scheduled to be arraigned today at 8 a.m. in the Brentwood Circuit Court.
After speaking with police and providing a description of the suspect that was used to apprehend him a short time later in Raymond, Blais returned to his work and was trying to finish things quickly before his midnight shift ended. His wife said he collapsed inside the store just after midnight.
Wallace said he was notified of the incident and the death soon after it happened. Police contacted Acting Rockingham County Attorney James Boffetti, who is also a member of the state Attorney General's Office, on Dec. 26 to discuss the case, Wallace said.
