Cumberland Farms robbed in Goffstown
Security cameras recorded an armed robbery at Cumberland Farms on Mast Road on Wednesday. Police are asking anyone with information to call 497-4858. (COURTESY)
Police said a Hispanic male entered the store at 772 Mast Road around 9:39 p.m., brandished what appeared to be a black, semi-automatic handgun, and demanded money and cigarettes. He left on foot heading toward Mast Road.
Surveillance cameras recorded the robbery. The suspect, believed to be between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, is seen wearing a black, short-sleeved T-shirt over a gray, long-sleeved shirt and dark-colored pants and a black baseball cap. A blue and white bandana covered his face.
The investigation is still in the preliminary stages, but Chauvette said officers are studying the surveillance tape and canvassing the neighborhood. Police are also checking security cameras at neighboring businesses to see if they captured anything that might be helpful, Chauvette said.
About a half-dozen armed robberies were reported in Goffstown within the last year. The weapons involved included a metal pipe, a small wooden bat, and firearms. Arrests have been made in some of those cases, Chauvette said.
The Cumberland Farms robbery occurred in a busy area during peak business hours, pointing to a more brazen type of offender, Chauvette said.
Police have responded with more vigilant patrols. Officers observe retail parking lots, especially near closing times. Patrolmen also keep a close eye on the two 24-hour stores in town, Chauvette said.
Police ask anyone with information regarding this case to contact the police department at 497-4858.
