Thieves Enter New Hampshire Convenience Store Through Roof

December 19, 2011

Police are looking for two men who broke into a New Hampshire convenience store through the roof before making off with cartons of cigarettes.

Police in Allenstown say video surveillance at the store shows a ceiling tile falling to the floor followed by two men dropping into the store.

Chief Shaun Mulholland tells WMUR-TV that the culprits peeled back some shingles and pried up some plywood to gain entry at about 3 a.m. Monday.

The thieves grabbed some pizza delivery bags and filled them with about 100 cartons of cigarettes, valued at nearly $5,000, before taking off.

Mulholland says police recovered some tools that were left behind. They also found blood at the scene that is now being tested.
