Pricey basketball sneakers stolen in Facebook transaction

MANCHESTER — A Nashua man who put a pair of Jordan Concord basketball sneakers up for sale on Facebook was robbed Monday afternoon when he went to meet a potential buyer at Domino's on Amory Street.

Police said Nicholas Martucci, 26, of Nashua, arranged to meet the buyer at the 140 Amory St. pizzeria. However, when the "buyer" arrived, he grabbed the shoes and ran off with them, according to Martucci.

The seller chased the man a short distance but gave up when the thief met up with a second man.

Depending on the style, retro Jordan basketball sneakers sell for a few hundred dollars to $2,000 a pair online.  The Nashua man was asking $230 for the pair he was selling,  police said.

The thief is described as a black man, about 6-foot-5 with a thin build. He wore shorts and a blue sweatshirt with a red "Obey" logo on the front. His accomplice is described as a black man about 6-foot to 6-foot-2.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 668-8711. Anonymous tips for cash rewards may be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at
