Police: Man poses as trooper, steals truck from N.H. dealership

MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - Manchester Police are looking for a man who they said posed as a Massachusetts State Trooper shortly before he stole a truck at Team Nissan.

Shortly before 10 a.m. on Monday, dealership manager Stephen Gerbino said the man walked in and introduced himself as “Adam Foley.” He was seen wearing a white hat and a Massachusetts State Police windbreaker.

Gerbino said the man asked a salesman if he could test drive a 2011 grey Chevy Silverado.

“When he asked him for his driver’s license before they went out on a test drive, he reached in his pocket and said, ‘Oh, I left it in my car. I have my police badge and ID here, is that good enough?’ And out of respect for the badge the sales guy said yeah,” said Gerbino.

The two went for a test drive and came back. The man had another request though; he wanted to take the truck by himself to Merrimack to show his wife. Gerbino said the salesman agreed to let him.

“After he let him take it for a little bit, he tried calling, he realized it was a fake number, fake address, fake everything,” said Gerbino.

By that time, the truck and the pretend State Trooper were long gone. Gerbino said he was worried what the man might do next.

Anyone with information on the man is asked to contact Manchester Police.
