MANCHESTER — Manchester Police are investigating a string of jewelry thefts targeting local stores within a week, with Days Jewelers on March Avenue experiencing two incidents of snatch-and-grab tactics.

The first reported theft occurred on Nov. 20 at Days Jewelers, located at 66 March Ave.

An employee witnessed a man requesting to view a gold chain.

The suspect, described as a white male with dark hair, donned in a yellow and black hooded sweatshirt or coat and dark pants, quickly grabbed the chain and exited the store.

A mere three days later, on Nov. 25, Days Jewelers fell victim to a second theft.

The perpetrator, another white male, this time with short brown hair, facial stubble, and wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, brown leather boots, and a distinct black ball cap with a yellow smiley face, employed a similar approach to steal gold chains.

The third incident took place at Market Square Jewelers at 814 Elm Street on Nov. 28.

A man entered the store and asked to see gold rope chains and cross pendants.

During the viewing, he seized a chain and fled.

The suspect is described as a white man, aged between 35-39, wearing a black beanie hat, red scarf, a black jacket over a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, and black and white Nike sneakers.

Manchester Police urge anyone with information regarding these thefts to contact Detective Andrew Choi at 603-792-5514.
