1 min read

MANCHESTER — Two jewelry stores in Manchester were subjected to snatch-and-grab thefts within days of each other, according to local police.

The first incident occurred on Nov. 25, when a man entered Day’s Jewelers at 66 March Ave.

After asking to see gold chains, he abruptly grabbed one and fled the store.

The suspect was described as a white male with short brown hair, facial stubble, and was seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, brown leather boots, and a distinctive black ball cap with a yellow smiley face on the front.

Three days later, on Nov. 28, a similarly described man walked into Market Square Jewelers at 814 Elm Street.

He requested to view gold rope chains and cross pendants.

During the showing, he seized one of the chains and quickly left the premises.

This suspect appeared to be between 35 and 39 years old and was last observed wearing a black beanie hat, red scarf, black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt, dark-colored pants, and black and white Nike sneakers.

Manchester Police are investigating the two incidents and have suggested the possibility of a connection between them due to the resemblance in suspect descriptions and methods of theft.

Detective Andrew Choi has urged anyone with information to come forward and contact the Manchester Police Department at 603-792-5514.
