GOFFSTOWN — Police are looking to identify a man accused of using a Manchester business account — which he may not have had the authority to access — to purchase power tools from a hardware store over three days.
The tools were purchased from Aubin Hardware in Pinardville.
The man charged the power tools — collectively valued at more than $600 — to the account for Varney Street Auto out of Manchester, said Goffstown Police Lt. Thomas Hammond.
On Aug. 3, the man spoke with the owner of Aubin, who questioned the man’s affiliation with Varney Street Auto, Hammond said.
Hammond said the man told the owner that his grandfather owned the auto business. But when the owner of Aubin went to call the owner of Varney Street Auto, the man left the store and headed toward Manchester.
The man could be facing three theft charges, Hammond said.
According to police, the man has short dark hair and dark facial hair, is 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 155 to 170 pounds.
Anyone with information about the man is asked to contact Goffstown police at 497-4858.
