MERRIMACK — A 23-year-old man accused of robbing a local D’Angelo’s sandwich shop earlier this week allegedly fled from police before being taken into custody early Thursday morning.

Police, who have been searching for Matthew Thomas Clough since the burglary on Monday, received an anonymous tip that he may have been staying at a residence on Turkey Hill Road.

The Merrimack Police Department’s Tactical Containment Team responded to the home early Thursday where Clough was seen walking along the perimeter of the property, away from authorities, according to a news release.

“Clough was on the property and fled while the search was being conducted,” police said in a statement. “ … Clough was taken into custody after briefly refusing to comply with commands.”

Clough is facing charges in connection with an armed robbery Monday evening at D’Angelo’s, 3 Amherst St.

He allegedly told an employee that he had a gun and demanded cash. Clough was able to flee the restaurant with an unknown amount of money.

Clough, who is homeless, was set to be arraigned on various criminal charges Thursday afternoon at Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua.
